Portland State University’s College of Education and the Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) are excited to reprise this 2nd annual interdisciplinary summit. We invite disability specialists, urban planners, engineers, transportation professionals, students, and community members to discuss the nexus between design, innovation, technology, and access. Themes will examine technological innovations that improve accessibility and wayfinding; smart cities; interdisciplinary approaches for intersections; unequal access to safe roads for those with disabilities who are persons of color; and opportunities for regional coordination across adjacent metropolitan areas, with an emphasis on the Cascadia region.

Portland State University
Artist and Designer
Portland, Oregon

Leeahnn Victorio is an aspiring artist and designer from Oregon. Originally from the Philippines, she moved here in 2016 to find better accommodations and opportunities. She states, "I've been fascinated with the arts since I gained consciousness. When I was growing up, I watched cartoons and marveled at the process. I remember copying several frames - it was a wonder! I promised myself that one day I'll be the one who'll be animating cartoons." As the years progressed, she managed to understand and implement many different forms of art. She continued to draw cartoons and even picked up painting along the way, "Even though it's hard for me to do it, due to my visual impairment, I persisted. I have even won local school art contests!" She is currently studying at Portland State University, majoring in graphic design and minoring in business administration. She believes she is still growing, striving and pursuing goals that will push her beyond her "yesterday self." Leeahnn will be sharing one of her digital art works entitled "escapism" and talking about her use of accessible devices to create art.
