How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Our recommended (and favourite) number! Thank you for supporting our efforts to hold space for creative experimentation, documentation and providing free access to resources about local theatre!
Some say that 24 is a magical number. It will be when your $24 goes into helping artists make theatrical magic for the stage and audiences! Thank you for getting us on the road for the coming year.
Big or Small, your contribution is much appreciated. We're looking for a community of believers in the magic of good theatre -AND- We're looking for passionate patrons who believe in our work!
Be a monthly donor with as little as $10/month! Your steadfast support will enable the continuous and largely invisible work of documenting Singapore theatre and nurturing emerging theatre-makers.
In May 2020, we have had to vacate the premise of 42 Waterloo Street, our home since 2014, and find novel ways to continue our operations and lift the spirits of our artist and audience communities.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO CONTINUE GROWING THE THEATRE SCENE.
Every contribution enables us to continue developing Singapore's theatre ecosystem through our myriad of programmes and initiatives that supports independent artists and arts groups. As a direct grant recipient of the National Arts Council for FY2020-22, we are funded partially for our work. We still need to raise at least 45% of our annual operations costs in order to sustain year on year.
Centre 42 is a non-profit theatre development space committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage. Our mission is to:
- nurture talent and incubate content of text-based works for the stage;
- build public awareness and appreciation for Singapore theatre; and
- be a focal point for research, documentation and critical discourse on the development of Singapore theatre.

In 2021, we have been rolling out new plans comprising artist residency schemes to develop artistic practices and engage with theatre histories. We are working towards the official launch of our revamped digital archive for Singapore theatre history and have been collaborating with partners to introduce more activities for promoting local theatre to the public.
Since our return back to an office space and co-locating with the Arts Resource Hub at 42 Waterloo Street, we have continued to offer avenues of creation and documentation as well as training workshops and presentations, and have adapted our ways of working with artists and programmes to still build a sense of liveliness and community. We are always striving to do more, in the small ways we can, to sustain the livelihoods and spirits of our art-making community.
Heading into the new year, your support will help us as we find new ways to move forward.
