Resiliency Workshops

Resiliency Workshops

Resiliency Workshops are a key component to the TACA Resiliency Initiative – a focused effort to support and strengthen Dallas arts and cultural organizations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Resiliency Workshops are a series of free professional development workshops aimed at providing local arts and cultural administrators access to expertise on specific topics relevant to our current local landscape. These workshops give organizations the opportunity to directly engage with local and national arts experts on topics such as COVID-19 and racial equity in the arts.

Fundraising During a Pandemic
#RealTalk With Local Development Professionals

January 20, 2021 | 1:00-2:15 p.m. CST
Zoom Meeting


Fundraising is tough. Fundraising during a pandemic can be even tougher as tried-and-true “best practices” may be in flux. In this panel conversation and Q&A with Dallas development professionals, we will candidly explore strategies and tactics that are (and aren’t) working locally at arts institutions and what that means for “best practices” and “new practices” moving forward.
