About the speaker
Mirela Kulović is a Bosnian-born, Boston-based painter whose paintings and drawings explore memory and the unconscious through symbolism, figuration and abstraction. Her artwork – spanning paintings, drawings and text – is process-oriented and characterized by violent accidental marks, which are often accompanied by repetitive marks, symbols, numbers, letters and paint-pouring. Her collaborative works include international artistic and cultural projects that address the social, cultural, and psychological needs of distressed and displaced communities.

February’s Theme is Divergent
Technologist, author, and designer John Maeda explains, “A divergent thinker takes an idea and expands it. They look for new ways to connect it with other diverse things […] I’m in favor of a synthesis to connect the convergent and divergent.”
As creators, builders, and thinkers, how can we get better at solving complex problems? A promising starting point is for us to be in the same spaces with those we’ve traditionally deemed different.
Moments of divergence can create beautiful futures when we are willing to leave space for change. Take a step back to reflect on what winds of change you want to welcome into your life today.
