Storying Sheffield

No Fixed Abode: ‘My Uncle’

In 2014, students on the Storying Sheffield course worked with the National Fairground Archive to produce a series of narrative responses to the Archive. These were published in the book ‘No Fixed Abode’ produced by Eleven Design.

One of the stories was Saffron Rain’s piece, ‘My Uncle’, which explored themes of exhibition culture, disability, and the ‘freakshow’. Saffron’s narrative is illustrated with an image by her uncle Ben Cove. Click on the image below to see a larger version of the story, or click here to download a PDF file.
