Steve Goes to Carnival

Exhibition and Shows

3 Oct 2018 to 20 Jan 2019

From concept to picture book, join Steve on his adventure through Rio’s Carnival and explore how this story came into existence through a learning journey and dynamic collaboration between Joshua Button and Robyn Wells.

The narrative of “Steve Goes to Carnival” emerged from a Year 6 literacy project. Joshua, who has an intellectual disability was mentored by Robyn to assist him with his reading and writing.

Inspired by Joshua’s fascination with gorillas they embarked on a creative literacy process that spanned ten years. This collaboration of research, illustration and writing around the kitchen table in their hometown of Broome has resulted in this remarkable book “Steve Goes to Carnival”.
