Britannia would like to assist those who are not able to afford the advertised cost of certain recreation programs; at the same time, our operation needs to be financially viable. Click here for our Subsidy Policy.

Location: 1739 Venables
Painting, banner hanging, cleaning and building help needed.
Located at 1739 Venables (at Commercial Drive), this building is a landmark in the community. We will be hosting our programs in the space and renting the space out for community groups. Our mission is to foster active community building, collaboration, co-creation, grass roots education and involvement to contribute to quality of life for individuals and neighbourhoods. We do this through self-sustained affordable space rental, responsible maintenance and repair, open and transparent space management. Although it may take up to a year to establish we are confident that there will be great opportunities for our community over the long term. Currently it is home to Kick Stand Vancouver a cycling resource centre operated by Britannia volunteers who operate an accessible work space for community members to fix bikes in a supportive environment.

Join Todd for a conversation about his weaving practice. "Everything we need to know about weaving we learn from the spider," Todd says, "You start with four warps or strands (spider legs) and weave in a weft strand or weaver, and form the Haida cross, and then weave around the legs of the spider, as a spider would when spinning its own web. Around and around."
