Bio: Joshua A. Fisher researches how to design community storytelling platforms that utilize emerging media affordances to facilitate social change. He collaborates with community leaders, artists, writers, and students on stories of communal significance. Working with the Office of the Arts at Georgia Tech, he developed a world scale AR storytelling platform to this end. In academia, part of his teaching philosophy is facilitating opportunities for students to connect theory to practice within communities outside of the classroom. This has led to wonderful partnerships with the Peachtree&Pine Homeless Shelter, the Arthur M. Blank Foundation, and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. He has produced a number of 360-VR shorts for these organizations. Over the years, he has become an established public speaker and storyteller with performances, lectures, and talks on digital publishing, interactive narratives, and augmented reality. He has had the pleasure of teaching courses on visual narrative, storytelling, communication and culture, and mobile development.
