Milagros Verendia

Coming from an international and multi-cultural background, Mica’s work ethos and approach reflects her values – inclusive, accessible and human-centered, with a creative flair for the narrative arts. With a degree in International Affairs, she set out to work in international civil service, and held several positions in communications at the United Nations. She then shifted to lending her skill set to the arts and cultural institutions.

Today, Mica consult with both spheres, as well as social media figures with impactful objectives. Her work has reached millions of people globally, providing safe containers for healing, empowerment and mutual aid in vast landscapes, and have been translated into many different languages. Past clients include several agencies within the United Nations, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Community Organized Relief Efforts (CORE), Brooklyn Museum and Big Little Feelings, Inc.

Mica is most interested in community care as praxis towards abolition. She has a strong interest in how humans connect, and the many-fold layers and modalities this involves. Her curatorial practice is founded on non-violent and accessible communication, which are all baked into the DNA of everything she does, mainly in service of mostly BIPOC and immigrant communities.
