Britannia Through Two Films - The Art of Britannia & Silver Ann - Britannia's Last Wooden Gillnetter

Britannia Shipyards

Richmond, BC

Digital recording Film & video History & heritage Museum Painting Visual arts

Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site is an authentic representation of a once thriving intercultural community of canneries, boat yards, and residences. This year, we draw on the theme of unexpected intersections by creating two videos about unusual aspects of the Britannia Shipyards site. In The Art of Britannia, we use the art of Wan Li Zhang and Cathy Kluthe as a window to exploring the history of our outdoor industrial site. In Silver Ann - Britannia's Last Wooden Gillnetter, we explore how the intersection of boat building traditions from diverse cultures led to the creation of the gillnetter the Silver Ann in 1969. The Silver Ann was the last wooden boat to be built at Britannia. Find these videos online at richmond.ca/britannia or at facebook.com@britshipyards and our Instagram TV channel instagram.com@britanniashipyards from September 25 to October 25, 2020.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
