Thurrock International Celebration of Culture (TICC) sets out to provide Thurrock with an enhanced sense of civic pride and identity by creating participatory opportunities, activities and events in collaboration with the Creative and Cultural sector.

TICC provides a forum for community networking, idea development, event planning and provides the wider community with the opportunity to make contact with a highly diverse range of opportunities in Thurrock. A broad range of creative and cultural projects combine to form an annual festival programme in summer in Thurrock.

TICC builds the capacity of culturally active groups in Thurrock by supporting their development throughout the year and enabling those groups to engage with young people, education providers, communities and new audiences.
