May is the European theme month on factory chimneys, an "endangered species".
So help us to save the chimneys and do organise in your neighbourhood an event to call the attention to them.
We started the campaign on May 1st in Roubaix. The other events that already have been announced, will be put online as soon as possible, when we have received the details.
For May 9th, the Europe Day, we launched the idea of "a Serenade for a Chimney" - see www.industrialheritage.eu/EYCH2018/May/Serenade-for-a-Chimney
Have a musician or a singer perform the "Ode to Joy" in front of a chimney, record it and send us the pictures or the video
Next theme months are:
- June : the industrial town and its services
- July & August: transport and travel
- October: adaptiver re-use of industrial buildings
