TFAF provides important learning opportunities for arts advocates across the state through our programs, including the 2023 Texas Arts Advocacy Summit, Arts Leadership Coalition, Regional Conversations, and HOT Toolkit.

Texans for the Arts Foundation (TFAF) is a non-partisan statewide nonprofit/501(c)(3) arts organization that organizes efforts through data collection, education, outreach, and community engagement to protect and increase public funding for the arts at the state, national, and local levels.

Texans for the Arts Foundation's vision is for Texas to lead the nation in investing in the arts and to ensure that the arts are an ongoing part of the public dialogue.

We believe the arts inspire community change that fosters economic development, creates a true sense of place, builds bridges and connects diverse cultures, and brings meaning and value to our lives both as individuals and as members of our larger society.
