is a platform for students and designers of color to share their stories.

Stories of grit, pain, joy, hope, and strength. Stories of how one might have come into the field of landscape architecture, one's family's relationship with land, reflections on race as one enters the workforce, large, medium, and small triumphs, perhaps one's struggles with overcoming imposter syndrome.

Every individual's story is complex and nuanced, and Healing Space invites you to share yours with us.

Launched by students in UC Berkeley’s Landscape Architecture + Environmental Planning program, Healing Space (IG: @healingspace_berkeley) is a platform dedicated to uplift and amplify the voices and stories of underrepresented students and designers of color in the field of landscape architecture and related fields nationwide (i.e. architecture, planning).

We want to hear and amplify your stories.

In a two pronged approach, Healing Space will provide monthly to bimonthly listening space for students to actively share their stories with each other, as well as through published media via this website with rolling submissions.

Healing Space aims to uplift and center underrepresented BIPOC voices,  and by doing so, embrace and strengthen diverse voices within our discipline.
