Updating the Amache Interpretation Plan: Reframing Interpretation at a WWII Japanese Incarceration Site

Development of a master interpretive plan for exhibitions, site interpretation, and public programs for the Granada Relocation Center National Historic Landmark, known as Amache, and the Amache Museum.

This Historic Places project requests Planning grant funding from the National Endowment of the Humanities in the amount of $40,000 in order to revise and update the Amache Interpretation Master Plan. An updated interpretive plan will more fully integrate the needs, perspectives, and voices of a stakeholder community that has substantially grown in the last decade and consider the new and continued ways in which this community interacts with the site. New advancements in technology and the opportunities they present now and for the future will also be updated. In addition, the interpretive themes that provided the thematic structure of the 2007 Plan need to be contextualized in today’s reality, reframed to address the relevancy, urgency, and necessity of sharing the lessons that Japanese incarceration can offer to the social and political climate of today.
