Dr. Misha Myers,

Co-Investigator

 

 

Key research expertise: Performance studies, feminist methodological approaches for digital humanities, arts-based and creative methods, practice-led research

Experience: Through my career as a researcher and practitioner, I have built an international reputation for developing arts-based and digital methods for understanding experiences of place and how it matters politically for isolated and marginalized groups including refugees and asylum seekers, women and rural communities in a global context. This impact-driven work has taken shape through different art forms and media in collaboration with NGO, community organisations, social service providers, theatre companies, and commercial partners to generate new strategies and knowledge. Previous projects have attracted an AOL Innovation in Community Award, been presented at international venues and festivals including European Cultural Centre in conjunction with Venice Biennale #52, European Championship Games Glasgow, UnBox, Alchemy, Sideways and Edinburgh Forest Fringe and resulted in over 40 articles, chapters, blogs and reports.
