  • will share with you our insights into 'work as an integration machine'
  • we share our findings from interviews with eye-witnesses and places witnessed

About our Project

When we asked eye-witnesses how integration worked in the heavy industry workplace, people said: "It worked" - "It had to work".

Integration seems to have been a 'natural by-product' of work in those days.

Nowadays the industrial sites have gone or become cultural heritage sites. What has happened to the 'machine' at work that made integration happen in those days? What can we learn from it?

We set out to get a grip and feel of those times. To smell, feel and explore the sites of work, the landscapes and cityscapes work shaped in those days. We set out to capture the narratives people shared, talk to eye-witnesses, former workers, trainers, family members, organisers of freetime activities. Trying to trace the shaping forces that made the influx of people to shape a unifying, productive stream.
