"Brand X creates an inclusive community within the East Sydney Arts precinct that has helped APY Gallery to build and nurture relationships with local arts and marketing stake holders including the City of Sydney. We have been thrilled to be partnering with Brand X and hope to continue to build on this relationship. APY Gallery will be continuing to work with Brand X in 2019 to create a thriving arts culture and economy in the East Sydney region."

"If we are to seriously talk about supporting diversity within the arts, authentically, then money and infrastructural support needs to be invested in platforms, the like of which Brand X are brilliant at. Brand X, TWT studios and ESCAC are vital infusions to an otherwise fragmented and support-starved Sydney contemporary performance and dance sector. Their programs are vital. They embrace experimentation and cross-artform discussion. They are enabling artists at a time when other circumstances have seriously disabled us. They offer hope and a better sense of purpose and wellbeing."

"The East Sydney Community and Arts Centre under the guiding light of The Flying Nun has become one of the only accessible, affordable and nurturing venues for artists living on the fringe. In a city that has become one of the most expensive in the world, property development has thrived, and grass roots community and creative endeavours have suffered dearly. Artist across a spectrum of many disciplines (performance, film, storytelling, music and theatre) through Flying Nun have finally found an arena to cultivate their audience. Flying Nun's bottom line is not about accumulating the corporate dollar but inspiring creative ventures by the community for the community."

"I feel it is so important for us to have an accessible and affordable stage to present our ideas, in a place the community can gather for shared experience, appreciation, ideas and culture. Brand X delivered and then some, once again."

Celia Curtis (Performer/Producer)

"The Flying Nun by Brand X has allowed for my growth as an artist. Brand X has given us affordable space to try new ideas that would otherwise have been impossible because of the high cost of space in Sydney. It is an incredible opportunity that we have been afforded - it gives us the space to take risks."
