Artist Residency Fund

Grants for Artist Residencies

The 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, ten innovative and impactful residencies have been supported.

Interested in applying?

2018 Artist Residency Fund grants are open to performing arts organizations who are current Arts General Operating Grant recipients. Grant guidelines and applications will be posted by April 30, 2018. The deadline to submit an application is June 29, 2018 by 5:00 p.m. (CST). Grant awards will be announced by September 7, 2018.

“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.”
