Who is this platform for?
This platform is for theatre practitioners who are a part of or are looking to form a collective or working group focused on three main aspects: text-enabled practice, peer-to-peer learning and resource creation. Theatre-makers, arts managers, writers and designers are all welcomed. The recommended range of members is 3 to 20.
What kinds of collectives are suitable for this residency?
We primarily evaluate the collective’s fulfilment of the aforementioned criteria.
Priority will be given to collectives that are keen on explorations not already accounted for in the scene, as well as collectives that are able to commit to reciprocal sharing with C42’s other programmes and artists-in-residence.
Further evaluation will be conducted by the Centre 42 team, although we often invite relevant experts to contribute their input to aid evaluation for necessary cases.
What kind of support will Centre 42 provide?
Centre 42 will provide a stipend and venue support to the collectives for their meetings and rehearsals. Additionally, Co-Lab Residents Collectives and their members may look forward to opportunities in capability development, as well as documentation support.
In the event of public facing events, the Centre may also provide marketing and logistical support, in line with the needs of the Co-Lab Residents.
What is expected of the Co-Lab Resident Collectives?
Resident Collectives are expected to contribute selected outreach and engagement efforts to share publicly about their work and/or process, with the freedom to decide their angle and content.
In the spirit of resource and knowledge sharing, collectives are also encouraged to conduct workshop or activities for fellow C42 artists-in-residence, the details of which may be further discussed.
How often does this residency accept Resident Collectives?
The Co-Lab Residency will accept up to 2 residencies per year, with each residency to commit minimally to a one-year term (renewable on a yearly basis).
