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.

An icy trip to Chenderit School, Banbury. The service station car park transformed by the frost. I Packed This Myself opens there at the Michael Heseltine Gallery on Thursday and will run for just over a month. Art head John Childs has printed up Tom Pilston's photos of migrant workers in Cornwall. And we will be unveiling our new suitcases with maps of metaphorical journeys by Glyn Goodwin...Local primary schools will each contribute a suitcase.
