Not to be missed – The Box in Plymouth

The wonderful venue The Box in Plymouth is featuring some of Tom Pilston’s photographs of flower pickers in Cornwall – taken as part of our project I PACKED THIS MYSELF, which throws a spotlight on the workers from overseas in Cornwall, who play such a vital role in the local economy.

Click here for more about The Box’s Dutch Flowers exhibition –  open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am-5pm and selected bank holidays until 7 January 2024.

The exhibition explores the development of Dutch flower painting from its beginnings in the early 1600s to its blossoming in the late 1700s. The engagement space at the gallery features Tom Pilston’s photos, taken as part of our ‘I Packed This Myself’ project, which explores the experiences of migrant workers making journeys to the UK and the pressures on local communities.
