New Works Fund

TACA New Works Fund Grants

New works of art are vital to a vibrant arts community. New works support local artists, explore new ideas, inspire innovation, challenge traditional thinking, and keep art fresh and relevant. But creating new work also means taking risks, which is challenging for many arts organizations. The TACA New Works Fund makes it possible for more organizations to take those risks and create original works with the potential for national and international impact.

Due to COVID-19 the New Works 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.


SOLUNA has always been a festival in which the Dallas Symphony pushes beyond its traditional genres and performances to engage and connect with audiences in new ways. Caravan - A Revolution on the Road is an extension of that and directly discusses important and tragic events from Dallas’s recent history. We are grateful to TACA for their generosity and support in demonstrating how music and art can be the catalyst for positive and meaningful social change.
