We are saying a bittersweet goodbye to Jovan Speller Rebollar after nearly five years as a Program Director with MRAC. We couldn’t be more proud that she will be taking her talents to The Great Northern as their new executive director!
Jovan joined the team in 2018, and quickly became an integral part of helping us shape the organization we are today. During her time with MRAC, she has worked with hundreds of applicants, reviewed thousands of applications, and has worked with the team to actively address barriers in our grantmaking process.
Most recently, she led the engagement and development of the Artists’ Futures (AF) program. Through this process, she gathered information from over a hundred artists of color that has pushed the boundaries on our traditional grantmaking practices. Her work has inspired the exploration of a new framework that centers equity, and we will miss her dearly.
Deep gratitude to you Jovan. We wish you the best in your new endeavor!
