In Uganda, our partners the Uganda National Museum and the National Memory and Peace Documentation Centre have been working in conflict affected communities in the north of the country. They have developed a travelling exhibition that shares heritage objects from the Museum’s collection with communities. The symbolism of the objects before, during and after conflict are explored by elders and young people, enabling a unique form of dialogue about conflict and reconciliation.
Our research explores the pedagogical processes involved with the travelling exhibition experience, with attention to the meanings that young people make from the experience and how these might be conceptualised as learning outcomes.
This work is supported by an AHRC GCRF Network grant, led by Abiti Nelson, Lizzi Milligan and Kate Moles.
