While Lab:time continues to provide small amounts of funding for early stage creative exploration, Lab:time² offers a more significant grant to support the next stage of development.

Lab:time² is for projects that are viable, and would benefit from a partnership with a venue, providing further Research and Development and the possibility of presenting work in progress to an audience.

Lab:time² is also supported by the Esmeé Fairbairn Foundation, 

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.  

Residencies have taken place at:

  • The Point, Eastleigh
  • Déda, Derby
  • Invisible Circus, Bristol
  • Jacksons Lane, London
  • Full Cirqle, Edinburgh
  • Pontio, Bangor
  • The Broadway, Barking
  • DanceEast, Ipswich
  • The Oak Circus Centre, Norwich
