Love Letters to 42 is a loving tribute to Centre 42, comprising love letters from different individuals, to be collected and organised as an online repository of personal reflections and memories associated with Centre 42 and the iconic blue house on 42 Waterloo Street.

Coordinated by Pei Qin and Jean, this project aims to capture the memories and sentiments of the arts community who have benefitted from working with and within Centre 42. We also hope to showcase how the physical spaces of 42 Waterloo street have nurtured the intangible bonds between the diverse individuals and groups in the arts community.
