10 March-3 April 2005. This exhibition at the Museum of the History of Catalonia looks at the important social role played by residents associations in Catalonia during the 20th century through a rich collection of photos, documents and audiovisual material about their history. From their origins in the 1960s these were important bulwarks of social resistance against the cultural oppression of the Franco years. Key moments of the dictatorship and the transition to democracy are highlighted in the show and reveal the important role these local organisations played in dragging Spanish society back into the mainstream. Entry to the museum costs 3.01 with concessions for students, young people and the aged.
