Art Forum: Debra Myers

Debra Myers is currently the Creative Producer of the Yijala Yala Project with the arts and social change organisation Big hART. The Yijala Yala Project works inter-generationally using arts and digital media skill-building to engage and inspire young people that are often outside education and in the juvenile justice system. The outcomes of these workshops are high quality artworks (films, music, theatre, digital storybooks and comics) that tell the story of the community including: Neomad interactive comic for iPad, the theatre work Hipbone Sticking Out and the compilation album and concert Murru.

Debra will speak about the processes she and the associated artists undertook to develop the NEOMAD digital arts project, and how artists use their specialist skills and knowledge to work in the field of community arts and cultural development.
