JANM Family Festivals

** This event is cancelled due to temporary closure of the Museum **

Time slots and tickets are unavailable.

With the rapidly increasing COVID-19 infection rates in Los Angeles County, the Japanese American National Museum will be temporarily closing to the public beginning immediately, to protect our visitors and staff from contracting the COVID-19 virus during this heightened period of transmission through the Omicron variant.
 
We apologize for the inconvenience but the safety of our community is of paramount importance to us, as is our obligation as a public institution to do our part to support efforts to inhibit the spread of the COVID-19 virus  We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and reassess our closure as the situation unfolds. 
 

In the 30 years since JANM first opened its doors, we’ve been sustained and inspired by your support and commitment to the Museum. While our doors are temporarily shuttered, we do hope that you’ll take this opportunity to explore our digital content – our rich collection of life histories and documentaries on our website at WWW. JANM.ORG where Japanese American stories come alive, our archive of letters and documents that preserve this important history – and continue your journey of learning with us.

Workshops

Published on Discover Nikkei, Nikkei Uncovered: a poetry column is a space for the Nikkei community to share stories through diverse writings on culture, history, and personal experience, curated by traci kato-kiriyama, author, poet, and performer. 

 

Now, the poetry column is going live! We have brought together a powerful, intergenerational lineup of poets previously featured in the column to share their poetry in a digital reading. Hosted by traci, the interactive reading and reflection will also include a short open mic portion, where viewers will be able to sign up during the program to share their poetry. 

 

Featuring Maiya Kuida-Osumi, Courtney Ozaki, Micah Tasaka, and Mitsuye Yamada.
