Go For Broke National Education Center Traveling Exhibition

After the 2016 opening of the Defining Courage permanent exhibit in Los Angeles, the Go For Broke National Education Center asked Quatrefoil to plan, design, and build a traveling version of the exhibition. Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience weaves personal accounts of Japanese Americans during WWII together with user-generated content to spark visitor dialogue and critical thinking around today’s issues. At each venue, the host institution is encouraged to add content telling their own community’s personal stories and events.

Since 2017, Courage and Compassion has visited communities across the U.S. where citizens extended a helping hand to Japanese Americans during and after WWII including Salem, Oregon; Honolulu, Hawaii; Kingsburg, California; Oberlin, Ohio; St. Paul, Minnesota; Monterey, California; Peoria, Illinois; Rochester, Minnesota; Chicago, Illinois; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Houston, Texas.
