Our Exhibits in the Community

Travelling Exhibits

Chizuko (Isabel) Kimoto (1921-2015) was a local Japanese Canadian settler and the subject of our first travelling exhibit. This exhibit was based on a school heritage project created by Armerina Ludlow.

The exhibit examines the changing attitudes towards Japanese settlers throughout Chizuko’s life, from her immigration to Canada, her internment during WWII and her subsequent return to the Ucluelet area where she became a highly respected and valued member of the community.

The exhibit is suitable as a temporary display for a community event or gallery.  The exhibit is available on free loan to locals groups.  It is easily transported and can be set up in just a few minutes.

More exhibits are planned and will be posted here when available.  For more information, please contact the Historical Society.

Annual Remembrance Day Photographic Exhibit

Every year, the Historical Society hosts a new exhibit at the ANAF for Remembrance Day.

Previous themes have included ‘Community Members in Active Service During World Conflicts’ and ‘The Impact and Change WWII brought to the people of the Ucluelet Area’.

Mini Photo Exhibits

These are available to loan to local businesses and organisations.  The Society is keen to develop an exhibit with specific relevance to a business or location.  Recently, the Barkley Café featured a display of the history of the Tugwell buildings on Main Street.

Memorial Plaques

Long term Ucluelet residents are memorialised on plaques located at the George Fraser Rhododendron Gardens.  The Historical Society can arrange for names to be added to a plaque. Costs are shared between ten sponsors of the names.  For more information, please contact the Historical Society.
