Dr. Anthony Fauci gives national arts leaders a dose of guarded optimism — a fall reopening. Maybe.

As Dr. Anthony Fauci puts it, “Like a multi-act play, however, pandemics are dynamic events. And in this COVID-19 pandemic, the behavior of the coronavirus as well as the people affected by it are the star players in how things will ultimately turn out.”

President Biden’s chief medical adviser for COVID-19 says to make it happen 70% to 85% of Americans need to get vaccinated by ‘late summer to early fall.’

The arts strengthen communities. TACA strengthens the arts.

At TACA, we believe in the transformative power of the arts. Whether it’s examining personal challenges or celebrating community diversity, art is a powerful agent of positive change. But being an arts organization is challenging! Limited funding, rising costs and a lack of access to other important resources make it difficult to survive and thrive.

We exist to nurture these organizations and provide visionary and responsive leadership to the arts community. By providing vital financial support and robust tools and training, we strengthen and fortify the artistic and administrative capabilities of arts and cultural organizations throughout North Texas. Our growing investment translates to transformative new works, impactful residencies, accessible youth programs and other initiatives that are critical for a strong, vibrant community.
