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.

A Relic Box and a swift meeting with Patrick Coleman in Haringay

A very swift meeting with artist Patrick Coleman in Haringay, as he hands over A Relic Box, a 3D scrapbook he has created in a toolbox, which belonged to his father who arrived in this country from Ireland in the early 1950s. It is going to join the exhibition, to be installed at Penair School, Truro, next week. Am so pleased that it will be part of the show - it is an incredibly powerful piece.
A swift handover because parking on his street in Haringay is impossible. So much traffic and to-ing and fro-ing.
