Biranna Richardson and Lance Owens made a presentation about Artworking to a group of 30-35 graduate-level art students at NIU School of Art and Design yesterday. Biranna and Lance spoke on Artworking’s innovative model of employment and business development for individuals with disabilities as well as possible career choices for art students. Thanks to Billie Giese, Associate Professor, School of Art and Design, Northern Illinois University for allowing Artworking to do some knowledge transfer. Artworking is the recipient of a BPDD SPARKS Grant.

What’s the Word?
Every month we plan to share some perspective on disability issues written by a self-advocate. This could be about an advocacy effort in the state or just some food for thought.
