Pop-Up Grant Recipients

TACA Pop-Up Grant Recipients

Meet our 2020-2021 Grant Recipients

Creating and sharing art amidst a global pandemic is no simple task! That is why we created TACA Pop-Up Grants – 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. TACA 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.
