How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Every bit counts toward making this blue house conducive for theatre-making! Thank you :)
Thank you thank you! This helps us maintain our free online resources about Singapore Theatre.
Yay! You are supporting our efforts to document insights into creating new works.
Awesome investment! Developing a good piece of theatre takes a fair bit of time and resources - so thank you for supporting that :)
About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
While the National Arts Council does provide us with some funding, we are still required to raise at least 45% of our annual operations costs in order to sustain the company.
One part of our efforts to fundraise is through Grow the Cloud: we seek to garner support from people who believe in our mission. Our goal for this initiative is to raise $20,000 by the end of 2019.
The icon for this campaign -the Cloud- is symbolic of our identity and intermediary role in the theatre ecosystem. Clouds play an important role by providing shelter from the sun. And when the clouds get big enough, it rains, which helps things to grow.
Every contribution adds to our Cloud Bank, enabling us to continue supporting and growing Singapore's theatre scene through our myriad of programs and initiatives.
Your gift will go an especially long way right now, as every dollar will be doubled by the Cultural Matching Fund in 2020. Also, our IPC status has just been renewed, so all cash donations will receive 250% tax deduction!

About the Charity
Centre 42 is a theatre development space committed to the creation, documentation and promotion of text-based works for the Singapore stage.
In the last 6 years, we have transformed the pre-war bungalow along Waterloo Street into a well-loved blue house: a home for independent artists and collectives; a safe space to trial and create new works; a repository of our local theatre history and resources.
Our 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.
As we strive to do even more for the scene in the coming years, we need your help! With theatres and creation spaces now closed, and many arts freelancers are without jobs for the foreseeable months, we hope to offer avenues of creation, documentation and training workshops and presentations that will sustain the livelihoods of our art-making community.
Every contribution enables us to continue growing Singapore's theatre scene through our myriad of programmes and initiatives. As a 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 growing our scene in local theatre. We need YOUR help!
