Wellcome x Sourced

This summer we had the pleasure of working with the Wellcome Collection to curate and edit five articles around the topic of MILK, to coincide with their recent exhibition.

Milk, from Grass to Ground

It is no exaggeration to say that without milk we would not be here. But once we are weaned as babies and move to solid food, the milk we add to our diets is transformed. For some it’s a necessity, for others a luxury or even an ethical dilemma.

This series looks at milk from the ground up, literally. We will explore how the grass cows eat affects the flavour of milk; how colonialism altered topographies to create space for dairy farming; the mythologies of purity milk can imbue; and why turning away from animal milk can create bonds for marginalised communities.

In keeping with Sourced’s editorial vision, this series examined the cultural, political and commercial systems in which milk participates, with a particular focus on the relationships between health (personal, animal or community) and milk. Read the five articles that were published on Wellcome Stories:
