About Campaign

ends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
Since Centre 42 opened its doors in April 2014, we have been home to more than 150 artists and theatre collectives, and supported the development of over 170 new theatrical projects. But as we strive to do even more for the scene in the coming years, we need your help!

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 small - small team, small spaces, small works. From a small blue house on Waterloo Street, we have grown to be home to more than 170 artists and theatre collectives, supported the development of over 200 new theatrical projects, and brought theatre magic to more than 40,000 audiences.

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.


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.
