Island Focus, Episode 2

SFCA’s Executive Director Jonathan Johnson was interviewed by Island Focus host Lyla Berg earlier this year about what the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts does for the state of Hawai‘i. “Focused on the personalities behind the organizations, industries, and agencies that keep O‘ahu moving, that’s Island Focus,” says host Lyla Berg. “We get to highlight the passion and influence of both the people and places that inspire, inform and impact our everyday lives.”
