The story so far










I PACKED THIS MYSELF started as a project working with migrant workers and local communities in Cornwall. We found instances of exploitation, discrimination and outright racism and tried to find ways of bringing people together to increase understanding. We've run workshops across Cornwall in schools and with other groups. We're now taking this work forward by looking at unemployment in rural communities.

Map for sale


We are still hard at work creating maps of metaphorical journeys for our new suitcases ... And see that up for auction this week at Sothebys is E H Shepard's famous map for the frontspiece of Winnie the Pooh. Expected to go for between £30,000 and £50,000 (258mm x 368mm)
It's not a map of a journey. More an illustrated place map. And I am no Christopher Robin fan (take Dorothy Parker's view...) but it is interesting to see...
