November & December TACA Pop-Up Grant Announcement

Announcing Our Newest Pop-Up Grantees

Creating and sharing art amidst a global pandemic is no simple task! That is why we created TACA Pop-Up Grants – grants up to $6,000 that are designed to celebrate and reward local arts organizations for programming that demonstrates exceptional quality, creativity & innovation, and accessibility & inclusion. Grantees were selected via a nomination process that incorporates 35 anonymous local volunteers. Pop-Up Grants are an important component of the TACA Resiliency Initiative – a focused effort to support and strengthen Dallas arts and cultural organizations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since August 2020, TACA has awarded $181,500 in Pop-Up Grants to support 59 projects. Of that total, $88,000 has gone directly to support over 340 key and supporting artists! To learn more, visit

TACA’s October Pop-Up Grantees are B. Moore Dance, Bruce Wood Dance, and kNOwBOX dance. Missed our previous Pop-Up Grant announcements? See our history of Pop-Up Grantees by clicking here.
