Japanese American National Museum
JANM engaged WolfBrown to evaluate its collaboration with the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in exploring the unconstitutional incarceration of almost 17,000 Japanese Americans in the Arkansas delta during World War II and the implications for present day America. Life Interrupted included eight exhibits; an array of K-12 curricular materials and teachers’ workshops; a PBS documentary; an ongoing web site; and a four-day conference that featured day-long visits to the two former camp sites. WolfBrown documented the initiative’s development and considered how the partners engaged each other and the public, the impact the collaboration had on them and their target audiences, and lessons they learned about the limits and potentials of partnering.
