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.

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.
