To RSVP, please see Christine Willis, Executive Assistant to the President, in the Office of the President on the second floor to add your name to the list. Due to space limitations, priority will be given to those students who are attending for the first time. There is no specific agenda and space is reserved on a first come, first served basis for up to 12 students. The purpose behind this initiative is for President Bratton to meet students in a small setting and gain an understanding of topics that are being discussed in our community. It is also a means for students to share their views with the leadership of the School.

'What does Intelligence Do For Us ?'
Intelligence is a capacity that intrigues us, defines us, and gives us a distinctive value. This session will engage with questions about intelligence its capacity, its many forms, its threats, its beauty and more.

The four corners of the carpet will be taken by the four speakers: Dr. Arani Bose, neurosurgeon, contemporary art collector and founder of the BosePacia Gallery in New York); Chris Bratton, President of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Joan Jonas, artist and MIT Professor at the Program for art Culture and technology; Valentine Talland, conservator of objects at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. The Raqs media collective will act as moderators.
