Artist Residency Fund Grant

Artist Residency Fund Grants

TACA developed the TACA Artist Residency Fund in response to a need by the local arts community for greater support of unique artist-community engagement opportunities. The fund supports local projects that promote meaningful interaction between artists and the community. The fund also seeks to encourage thoughtful and relevant communication among arts organizations, artists and communities. Since the launch of the Artist Residency Fund in 2015, 17 innovative and impactful residencies have been supported with $370,000 in grant funds.

Due to COVID-19 the Artist Residency Fund has been temporarily suspended. Please read our TACA COVID-19 Grants FAQ to learn more about these and other temporary changes to our grantmaking programs due to the pandemic.


We are honored to receive this grant award from the TACA Artist Residency Fund for our work with the nationally renowned KJ Sanchez. KJ specializes in writing plays based on the words of people from grassroots communities while exploring innovative theatrical possibilities. I can’t think of a better match for Cara Mía Theatre to further expand our aesthetic and continue deepening our relationships with neighborhoods throughout Dallas.
