MILK EXHIBITION OPENING/ LAUNCH

The "Power of Milk" Exhibition - 30th Sept, 2017

Igongo Cultural Centre in conjunction with the Ethnographic Museum of Zurich and The Uganda Museum organized Uganda’s first Milk exhibition aimed at engaging the milk community.  The exhibition under the theme ‘The Power of Milk' which was launched on 30th September 2017 and run as a permanent inclusion in the Igongo Cultural Centre Museum.

The exhibition gave insights on history, traditions and milk products, indigenous knowledge systems of the communities (Switzerland & Uganda) and process of making milk products. Additionally, the exhibition was not all about history and tradition but also displayed the status of milk in Uganda today, the global industrial change in regard to milk, gender roles, environmental, political economy as well as global perspectives.

Note: Milk is not only delicious and healthy for most of us, but also loaded with cultural and social meaning, closely interconnected with the state of our environment, involved in political and economic relations and highly dynamic when it comes to the development of new handling strategies and products.
