Mieke Anderson

Multimedia Storyteller

 

I am a journalist, narrative audio producer, sound designer and digital storyteller — winner of the 2018 Third Coast International Audio Festival’s inaugural Best Serialized Story Award and the 2019 Canadian Screen Award for Best Cross-Platform Project.

I lead complex co-productions, my podcasts consistently debut at #1 and my radio work has aired across North America on NPR and PRI. My site-specific sound installations and live performances have been featured at NAISA’s Deep Wireless Festival and the Radio Without Boundaries conference.
