Reiko Hayakawa

I was born in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan.

After graduating from university, I joined a major securities company and worked in asset management before transitioning to Investor Relations (IR) tasks. Following my departure from the securities company, I became involved in the direction of an art school owned by my relatives and the planning and operation of children's programs, including workshops in commercial facilities.

Through these experiences, I started contemplating the further possibilities of art education.

I am currently affiliated with Tokyo University of the Arts as a part-time lecturer in the Art Education  Laboratory.
