"The Cycle of Conferences that the Textile Industry Museum of the Ave Basin will organise in the last quarter of this year, entitled "Paths and memories: Industry and workers in the XIX-XX centuries", seeks to present some of the most significant aspects of the workers' movements that took place in this region during that period. Among the subjects covered, conferences will be presented on the struggles of the workers' demands, the question of women's work in the textile industry, or on the first great workers' strike that took place in the region".
