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.

Meetings in Truro and another lunch in a car park

A meeting in Truro late morning with a migrant worker who has been working in a medical supplies factory near Newquay.
Packed lunch in the long stay car park with a view of a large cactus. (Sub tropical plants a theme of the week.)
Then to Penair School, for a meeting with Citizenship teacher Carmel Henry and the art department on plans for rolling out I Packed This Myself at the school. An exciting space for an exhibition and exciting ideas from the Art Department on visualising the experience of migration.
