Richmond Stories: A Gathering Place
Date and time
This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.
Offered in English.
The city of Richmond, located at the mouth of the Fraser River, has always been a gathering place due to rich seasonal resources, from huge salmon runs to plenty of berries. Its position on the edge of the continent has linked it to overseas people and markets by ocean transportation, and later by air. Today, Richmond is a majority-minority city that is home to a citizenry from over 140 different ethnic origins.
Richmond Stories is a collection of 10 short videos that bring Richmond's history to life through storytelling, archival photos, and modern videography.

The Richmond Museum is operated collaboratively by the Richmond Museum Society and City of Richmond. The Museum’s vision is to make the history of Richmond relevant, engaging and accessible.
To support this vision, the Museum collects, documents, researches, preserves, exhibits and interprets objects of historical and cultural significance to the development and history of Richmond.
As storytellers, collectors and educators, our goal is to create moments of wonder and understanding. Our exhibitions tell the many fascinating stories of Richmond; our collections are windows into how we live, past and present; our education programs open minds, young and old; and our work inspires action for a healthy community and planet.
