A Zoom webinar that explores the direct impact of the Torii Gate Return Project and how it has bridged cultures and built lasting friendships. This webinar by Nate Sandel (Education Director, The Columbia River Maritime Museum, Oregon) demonstrates how the story of humanity between the U.S. and Japan transfigured to an inspiring global, multidisciplinary STEAM-based experience – through the Columbia River Maritime Museum’s Miniboat Program – for future generations on both sides of the Pacific. Moderator: Aki Nakanishi (Portland Japanese Garden’s Arlene Schnitzer Curator of Culture, Art, & Education).
For more information on the Torii Gate Return Project, Portland Japanese Garden is currently showing a documentary exhibition “Gates of Hope: Connecting Cultures” that follows the story. More information can be found: https://japanesegarden.org/the-gates-of-hope/
