While Lab:time continues to provide small amounts of funding for early stage creative exploration, Lab:time², which is also supported by the Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation, offers a more significant grant to support the next stage of development.

Lab:time² takes projects that are viable and would benefit from a partnership with a venue to provide further Research and Development and the possibility of presenting it as work in progress to an audience.

We have funding for ten Lab:time² residencies at venues across the UK. Each residency is tailored to the venue providing a mutually beneficial partnership.  

So far, residencies have taken place at:

  • The Point, Eastleigh
  • Déda, Derby
  • Invisible Circus, Bristol
  • Jacksons Lane, London
  • Full Cirqle, Edinburgh
  • Pontio, Bangor
