Your version of beauty does not define me - Iona Winter

As published with Reflex Fiction (UK) 2020.  Listen to the audio below:

Iona Winter (Waitaha/Kāi Tahu) is of Indigenous and colonised ancestry, and as a result avoids confining herself to form. She is widely published and anthologised, and has authored two collections: Te Hau Kāika (2019), then the wind came (2018). Iona lives on the East Otago Coast.       Instagram: iona_winter


Victoria McIntosh (Pākehā) lives in Ōtepoti.

Victoria’s practice moves between wearable jewellery, soft sculpture and assemblage. A collector and hoarder by nature, she works with found objects as a form of storytelling that interweaves both the personal and political.         Instagram: victoriamcintoshnz
