The will to change - Lecture

Trappscenen, Skellefteå

During the second half of the 19th century, strong movements emerged that fought for a society with greater freedom and equality, civil rights and decent living conditions. New groups make themselves heard - even in Västerbotten - and meet with hesitation and resistance before the ideas gain momentum and take root.

The popular movement archive in Västerbotten takes you to its archives and tells you more about a time of change around the turn of the century 1900. Many of the voices from the revival movement, the sobriety movement, the labor movement and other political movements are preserved in the associations' archives around the country. Their history of struggle, but also joy, celebration and celebration, is part of society's history and in various ways reflects the growth of democracy in Sweden.

The popular movement archive in Västerbotten was founded in 1969 and is a non-profit association that preserves and makes available associations' archives and offers service, lectures and school programs as well as help.with archiving. Our premises and archives are located in Umeå and Skellefteå and are open for visits. Welcome to us - there is life in the archives!
