Drinking deeply from museum work “Uganda and Switzerland and milk.

Cooperation between two museums in Uganda and the Ethnographic museum at the University of Zurich in Switzerland.

 Research, collection and exhibition being the core roles of Ethnographic and other museums, and given the fact that these roles require expertise and financial recourses which are not readily available all the time, cooperation has become one of the ways through which these objectives of museum s can be fulfilled.

Following the regulations set out by ICOM and the examples set by other co operations between museums in joint exhibitions and Curating; Igongo cultural centre Museum, Uganda museum and the Ethnographic museum at the University of Zurich are starting cooperation. Drawing on the expert knowledge and collections of the three museums, this project aims at jointly working on an exhibition on milk in Kampala, Mbarara and Zurich. Thus, the cooperating institutions believe that there is great potential for the contemporary museums in building expertise in research and Curating.

The success of this joint exhibition and Curating on Milk in the three Museums, we hope will act as a spring board for further joint exhibitions and Curating. The cooperation will also include other museums and Universities (relevant departments and individual experts) like Makerere University, Mbarara University Science and Technology, Zurich University and Mainz.

The Programme so far involves the following planned activities;

September 2015

Laboratory ‘Museological Exchange Uganda- Switzerland’ at the Ethnographic Museum Zurich
