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.

Putting together the new cases

Another busy day. A lot to cram in post the holidays.
Off first thing to Kensal Green to buy dried cod (bacalhau) from a Portuguese grocery shop (very lively early on a Sunday morning.) Picked up a calendar, too, with Portuguese and UK holidays marked with respective national flags. Then back to the office to make up the new folding suitcases with our designer, David Cross. Pack up the car, ready for the trip to Chenderit School, Banbury, later (install tomorrow). A great plus when transporting suitcases:  you can pack them inside each other like Russian dolls.
