Factory Chimneys and collective memory
Old factory chimneys are landmarks advertising the industrial heritage site below. They are symbols for the labour which took place at their feet. They are part of the identity of a town, a village, a former industrial area.
But they are endangered.
After the successful chimneys campaign during the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the steering group "Cheminées d'usine - Factory Chimneys" , continues its activities.
In 2018, the European Year of the Cultural Heritage, a special campaign was launched in May, and on 24-25th of August a successful European chimneys meeting took place in Tourcoing and Roubaix (France).
In 2019 we will continue our efforts - with again a chimneys month in May, and a European meeting of stakeholders at the end of August.
