Pop-Up Grants

Powering arts innovation, one POP at a time

What does it take to make art that breaks the mold?

Art makers are taking to the streets, storefronts, and parking garages of Dallas to bring art that matters to the people. TACA Pop-Up Grants reward and amplify the city’s most exciting, boundary-smashing artistic work; work that fuels a culture of creativity and innovation, and pushes us to rethink everything we know about art.

No Application Necessary

Grants of up to $7,500 are made bi-monthly to local artists, arts organizations, and artist collectives through a unique nomination process – meaning great work can get the funding it deserves without a single application submission. Two-thirds of the grants we give in 2024 will go directly into the hands of key and supporting artists.
