ARTS TAUNTON IS PROUD TO BRING YOU TYCA, AN ARTS FESTIVAL FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF TAUNTON.
Tyca stands for Taunton Youth Culture and Arts and it was first launched in 2019.
Tyca 2021 is coming soon!21/22 & 29/30 October 2021
This year’s Festival Theme is Empowerment. After the terrible year that we have all endured, it’s time to look ahead, appreciate what we have and plan for the future, whether this is looking after ourselves and our physical and mental health, our personal life journeys or our planet.
We have many treats in store for you – we have four festival days jam packed with dance, spoken word, music and theatre as well as new collaborations, specially commissioned works and a brand new short film festival.
This year we are also working with the Tyca Crew, a group of young people who will receive training in various aspects of event planning and marketing to support the delivery of the festival.
We are streaming the Tyca Festival online now. Click on the button to join us!
Enjoyed the festival and/or workshops?
If, after viewing or taking part in these you feel that you would like to make a donation to help Arts Taunton, through the Tyca Festival, continue in 2021, please click the button below. There is no minimum amount and we will be grateful for whatever you can give. Thank you in advance.
In the face of our present adversity we are especially grateful to the Brownsword Charitable Foundation, Somerset West & Taunton Council, The Schroder Charity Trust, Trevor Smallwood, Philip Gibbs and our many other supporters for their ongoing and enthusiastic support for Tyca. Without them it would be impossible to enable the young people of Taunton to take part in what has now become a unique opportunity to express their creativity.
