The opening of the Dalmatinka spinning mill and thread factory in the middle of the 20th century marked both the industrial and cultural revolution in the undeveloped and rural area of the Dalmatian Hinterland. As one of the most successful textile factories in Southeastern Europe, Dalmatinka was the initiator of the local economy, and the social and urban development of the town of Sinj. Since its very beginning, Dalmatinka instituted a housing care policy that affected the urbanization of the town. The factory displays the history of workers, housing care policy, infrastructure development of the town, as well as social phenomena such as female emancipation. This article presents an analysis of the results of a study which was conducted within the project “Industrial heritage and memory culture on the example of the Dalmatinka factory – Sinj” and points to the possibility of analysing the project in the context of establishing the political in art as an important element in engaging the public/community.
