Luz Bratcher
Director, Golden Repair

With nearly two decades of experience in the design industry, Luz Bratcher believes Design is one massive exercise in Hospitality: creating spaces and experiences where people feel like they belong. As a designer, she’s held roles at large corporations to startups. Through community work as a founding organizer for CreativeMornings: Seattle, a volunteer mentor for Hexagon UX and ADPList, she discovered that her passion wasn’t for making things, but making great designers instead. She joined School of Visual Concepts as an instructor, coach, and recruiter for the school’s public and design apprenticeship programs. Luz has recently launched a new business, Golden Repair, in which she provides workshop facilitation, culture design, and arts-based soul care. In addition to her coaching business, Luz and her husband are currently building a community art center in their south Seattle back yard called The Outpost, designed to create space for self-directed art residencies, art classes, and small performances.
