The story so far

I PACKED THIS MYSELF was a project working with migrant workers and local communities in Cornwall, which started in 2006. We found instances of exploitation, discrimination and outright racism. I PACKED THIS MYSELF brought people together to increase understanding. This blog is a record of the work done over the following five years.

Torrential rain and meetings at schools

A stormy week - torrential rain and meetings this week at Penair School, Truro and Pool School with teachers rolling out a Citizenship and RE agenda. All inspiringly keen to be involved. We plan exhibitions for February and March and assembly sessions. Also meet Maureen Twose of Cornwall Libraries at Redruth (where it seemed to be raining the most!) and plan a migrant worker reading list. And Andrew Yates, Social Responsibility Officer at the Diocese of Truro, which funded the first suitcase in I Packed This Myself. Andrew is a fountain of knowledge with a very full contact book. Not to mention Bridging Arts volunteer Mike Matthews.
