Artist Residency Fund

Artist Residency Fund Grant

The TACA Bowdon Family Foundation Artist Residency Fund supports the establishment or expansion of artistic residency programs in Dallas County. The Artist Residency Fund was created in an effort to foster meaningful interaction among those who create art and those who engage with art. The fund also seeks to encourage thoughtful and relevant communication among arts organizations, artists and communities. Evaluation is based on a project’s change-making potential, artistic merit and executional competence.

Since the launch of the Artist Residency Fund in 2015, 13 innovative and impactful residencies have been supported.

“Our residency successfully facilitated collaborative responsive programming that brought together an international community to our local community and advanced cross-cultural dialogue while offering the highest artistic quality. We are grateful to the TACA Artist Residency Fund for helping make this happen.”
