Centre 42 Limited
How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Centre 42 is a non-profit arts organisation with charity status that is committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage. We incubate original writing for production development; provide space for artists and new work creation; and develop a functional archive documenting the histories and processes of Singapore theatre.
The Centre's objectives are:
1.To nurture talent and incubate content, particularly in the area of text-based works and playwriting;
2.To build public awareness and appreciation for Singapore theatre; and
3.To be a focal point for research, documentation and critical discourse on the development of Singapore theatre.
Our programmes cater to content creators and audiences interested in new texts/creation processes. They are designed with 3 pillars in mind.
Incubate ideas through customised developmental processes appropriate for the work/its creator(s). To create significant and meaningful new work, artists must work at their own pace yet within a rigorous framework. Support for incubation come in the form of small grants, training platforms, access to artistic feedback and physical space usage.
Serving as a springboard for research and development, our functional archive documents the histories and processes of Singapore theatre. New work we help to develop can only have lasting pertinence if created within an authenticated historical context.
Share, educate and learn through reflecting on Singapore's dramatic literature through seminars, talks and the revisiting of past works and writings.
