Dr. Misha Myers is a Senior Lecture and Course Director of Creative Arts at Deakin University. Her work is all about creating and researching mobile and digital storytelling experiences that are interactive, place aware, location-based. She is exploring not only the use of digital technologies as tools, devices and environments for performance and storytelling, but how digital storytelling can be leveraged for community engagement and social innovation. Her work takes place across multiple platforms through live performances, games, installations, audio walks, radio broadcasts, or online artworks. It is often collaborative in process drawing together culturally diverse participants and teams with different disciplinary expertise to work towards bridging communities and solving challenging social problems through arts-based and digital methods.
Dr. Myers’ recent projects include "The Walking Library", an internationally recognised ongoing art-based research project created in collaboration with Dee Heddon (University of Glasgow) first commissioned in 2012 by the Sideways Festival of peripatetic art in Belgium, and by Glasgow 2018 European Championship Festival to collaborate with poet and visual artist Alec Finlay for Wild City. Produced by Monash Academy of Performing Arts and the Centre for Theatre and Performance, Monash University, in partnership with Melbourne’s Greek Community Centre, Myers developed the transmedia performance game for smartphone "Nobody's Ocean" in 2016. The work invited audiences to reimagine Homer’s great epic poem ‘The Odyssey’ as a game played in the streets of Melbourne.
Dr. Myers has been the recipient of several research grants and fellowships and led international research teams involving industry and academic partners as Principal Investigator. She was a recipient of a Monash Community Grant (2017) with Barking Spider Visual Theatre Company for ‘Theatre as Memory Work’ to explore inter-generational theatre based on stories of residents in aged-care. She was a UK Arts Humanities Research Council UnBox Fellow in India (2013) and received a follow on grant for the project ‘Play to Grow: Augmenting Agriculture with Social Impact Games’ involving collaboration with the Delhi-based rural development NGO Digital Green to co-design the game Bumper Crop with small-holding farmers in India. She was the recipient of two European Social Fund grants for the research projects ‘Augmenting Impact with Social Media’ involving a collaboration with the UK-based theatre company Wildworks exploring transmedial storytelling through social media and ‘Designing Landscape Narrative Experience with Locative Media’ involving industry partnership with Treasure Trails. She created the award-winning interactive multimedia storytelling platform and series of BBC radio Devon broadcasts way from home (2004) with UK inhabitants of refugee and asylum seeker background to map their remembered landscapes of home. The platform was published and commissioned by Performance Research Journal and attracted an AOL Innovations in the Community Award. She was the recipient of a Japan Foundation Fellowship to train with the Japanese theatre director Suzuki Tadashi in his method of acting in Toga, Japan (2000). She has trained professionally in acting, directing and composition for theatre since 1995 with Anne Bogart and the Saratoga International Theatre Institute from New York, USA.
