Two Sketches with Toby Morris - Metiria Turei

Web (Full Length Episode) – 2019

Lawyer, artist, and former Green Party co-leader, Metiria Turei gives her first major interview since leaving politics in 2017. In this relaxed chat series, host Toby Morris and Turei converse whilst completing artworks on the theme of "old lady super heroes" (at Turei's suggestion). Illustrator Morris opts for a sketch, and textile artist Turei cross-stitches. Turei talks openly about her life, from early days in activism, her new life as an artist and her former career in politics. She doesn't shy away from discussing the Green Party, including her radical, and highly controversial, confession of historic benefit fraud in 2017.

My political work and my creative work have all been around people. People are really important to me.
– Metiria Turei
