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.

Excellent feedback from Penrice Community College

Assistant teacher Jason Wood writes a kind email following hard work by Jo Grace and Bartek earlier in the month. Both found the school very impressive and focussed on the issue.
"We were impressed by the way you adapted your assemblies to the different year groups and also responded to the different expectations of english and drama classes. We have a significant number of migrant worker families in school and you have helped improve students empathy for migrants.
Your workshops recieved a very good response from the students and teachers. You made us think and challenged perceptions of migrant workers in Cornwall."
