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.

The next steps

A workshop at Torpoint College next Thursday on I Packed This Myself with Inga (who worked with us in January) ... looking forward to it, and also to developing our new project which naturally arises from the work with migrant workers.Will be in Cornwall all week. It will be key, of course, to build partnerships - and first and foremost follow up the leads and foundations built with Migration Impacts Funding via Inclusion Cornwall and Cornwall Council. Really would like to meet Inclusion Cornwall and Cornwall Works manager Andrea Gilbert - but she is an extremely busy person. She does have the morning of 17th April free - and we arrange a conference call. At least this is a start.
