rEvolver Guest Curator Program
Each year, Upintheair invites one or more emerging artists to participate in the creation of the rEvolver Festival as a Guest Curator. Guest Curators are mentored in Upintheair’s values and selection process, have an equal voice in programming decisions , and are supported to develop a unique outreach event or initiative.
