2008 was an exciting year at the Cannery. We had new events, worked with schools throughout the Lower Mainland, and opened our doors to thousands of visitors. Our plans for 2009 involve further development of some of the events launched in 2008 and new programs, such as Industrial Images (designed for secondary art classes) and an art exhibit entitled Salmon Return. At the moment, we are busily planning our 2009 exhibit and accompanying publication. What’s Afloat, a showcase of boats on the Fraser River, will open on May 2nd and will be ready for Doors Open Richmond. Stay tuned to learn more about our 2009 events and programs!
