Lisa Okikawa

To better understand the skills individuals with disabilities (specifically those who are blind or visually impaired) need for viable employment, Ms. Okikawa will attend the Kennedy Center’s Leadership Exchange in Art and Disability Conference. Ms. Okikawa will participate in seminars and learn creative and effective ways to seamlessly blend the teaching of core subject matter and workforce skills. Additionally, Ms. Okikawa will learn about and implement innovative arts programs created by arts organizations for students with disabilities.
