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.

Stithians dam and an old friend

A post Christmas Bank Holiday expedition. A very grey day. Decide to drive to Stithians dam as despite having been brought up near by I have never seen it - and also have a painting now by a local artist Gareth Bale of the dam.
A great surprise and so nice to see Gareth drawing there.
Gareth was a fellow curator on the I Packed This Myself exhibition in Camborne in March 2009. Tell him about the plans for February/March 2010.
