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.

Installing the exhibition and long drive to Swansea

An early start at Penair School, Truro, where we install the exhibition. A new arrival is a very powerful Relic Box by Patrick Coleman. It's a 3D scrapbook in his late father's toolbox, a scrapbook of mementos and ephemera from his life. It is very powerful and at the same time very delicate - protected here by a perspex box created by Alex White, University College Falmouth.

Tanya Davies and Carmel Henry - the Citizenship team at Penair who have really thrown themselves behind the project. 

 And finally, a long drive north and west  - to Swansea, where am speaking at a seminar on migration tomorrow.
