Phoenix Central Park
Phoenix Central Park is the singular vision of philanthropist Judith Neilson AM, well-known as the founder and owner of Sydney’s prized White Rabbit Gallery and its world renowned collection of contemporary Chinese art.
A collection of one-of-a-kind performance spaces in Sydney, including the multi-award winning Phoenix Central Park in Chippendale and a repurposed 19th-century Gothic church in Alexandria, Phoenix Cultural Centre aims to revitalise inner-city neighbourhoods with new cultural beacons that are as bold on the outside as the performances they present within.
As a private philanthropic initiative, Phoenix Cultural Centre places artists at the centre of its vision and, unbeholden to others, promotes genuine artistic risk-taking, unique collaborations and a contemporary narrative.
