Joshua Jon Lynch is a proud Ngaati Te Wehi poet and dancer exploring what it means to be in a body that is both flesh and story — colonised & coloniser; queer & straight; here & there. He has published written work in a variety of publications and is currently writing a poetry book for no more poetry. He has also co-curated and performed at MPavilion in Melbourne, Australia. Between 2018 – 2020 he completed two artist residency programs at the VARDA houseboat residency in Sausalito, California and has recently been invited to complete an artist residency at Pocoapoco in Oaxaca, Mexico.
