TICA is the first centre for contemporary art in Tirana. It offers a permanent platform for Albanian and international contemporary art in Albania. TICA has  been an important complement to support a vital art scene on a more continuous basis through a diverse program supported by a light and flexible organizative structure that has allowed it to implement different events as well has created a forum for discussions and debates on art, politics and power.

TICA attempt is to reintroduce culture as one of the most effective ways in pushing for critical thinking in relation to our contemporary condition and brings together all the energies, knowledge and contacts of all its members, to create an independent platform for socio-politically engaged contemporary art.
