Arcadia Landscape Architecture has established this scholarship after being confronted with the unacceptable representation of Indigenous Australians in Landscape Architecture.
The scholarship is an important step to ensure our profession, storytelling and management of our land will benefit from the cultural perspective of Indigenous landscape architects.
The primary aim of the scholarship is to encourage Indigenous students to enter our profession, as we believe proper representation of Indigenous people in our industry will galvanise our capacity to care for Country, connect with history and tap into ecological knowledge developed by our First People over eons. The involvement of the First People adds an intrinsic element to design meaning and connection to the land, as well as bringing value and richness to the sense of place, helping share stories and build cultural awareness.
