Misha is Course Director of Creative Arts and Senior Lecturer in Art and Performance in the School of Communication and Creative Arts in Deakin University’s Faculty of Arts and Education.
Misha’s work is all about creating and researching mobile and digital storytelling experiences that are interactive, place aware, and location-based. She explores 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.
Misha’s work takes place across multiple platforms through live performances, games, installations, audio walks, radio broadcasts, or online artworks. This work 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.
