“Bridging Cultures, Communities with Art and Education”
“Opening Doors, Unlocking Minds, Inspiring Hearts”
TFAA is an organization dedicated to addressing important societal issues through the powerful medium of art. We believe that no youth or child should lack the hope and emotional resources they need to overcome challenges and thrive. We believe in a hopeful future built by self and socially aware youth and adults who become servant leaders who care for others and their communities.
The Texan-French Alliance for the Arts (TFAA) is a 501c(3) non-profit organization devoted to bridging cultures, communities, and art. It was founded in 2005 by former Consul General of France and a group of enthusiastic Francophile foundations, corporations, individuals. It is supported by French and American corporations, foundations, private donors, as well as the Consulate of France in Houston.
“The Texan French Alliance for the Arts serves to program, promote and facilitate educational programs as well as artistic and cultural exchanges involving Texas and France. Its creative programs and varied partnerships aim to improve the quality of life in our cities and local communities using art, along with other disciplines, as a catalyst to create positive change. TFAA also strengthens at risk communities from France and Texas through children’s educational arts programs by equipping them with the tools to overcome their challenges and build a better future.
The core values of the organization are to inspire and engage the community, to build appreciation, educate, heal, and enrich through innovative collaborations, public accessibility, expertise, excellence and quality.
