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.

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.
