In 2015, John and Patricia Azarias established the Lysicrates Foundation to raise funds towards the restoration of the Lysicrates monument and to honour it by holding an annual Lysicrates Play Competition nearby.

The Lysicates Foundation aims to take the ancient Athenian mould to give a platform to world-class theatrical talent, making the Lysicrates Prize the People’s Choice and an iconic event in Sydney’s cultural calendar.
