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!
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.
But if 2020 has shown us anything, it's that the smallest things can have the largest impact. Our #smallwaysC42 fundraising campaign in 2020 saw our community pool efforts together to help raise funds for the next leg of C42's work, in fun and fulfilling ways!
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 May 2020, we returned 42 Waterloo Street, our home since 2014. We've not only lost spaces for our artists and programmes, but also an important source of rental income. With the arts sector adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, many arts-workers and companies are trying our best to survive financially. We hope to continue in the small ways we can, to offer avenues of creation, documentation and training workshops and presentations that will sustain the livelihoods and spirits of our art-making community.
For 2021, we're rolling out new plans comprising artist residency schemes to develop artistic practices and engage with theatre histories; a revamped digital archive for Singapore theatre history; and more activities to promote our local theatre to the public.
