Sherman Theatre sends warmest congratulations to Philip Carne on the announcement that he has been awarded the Robert Maskrey Award for Arts Philanthropy. Philip Carne’s relationship with Sherman Theatre began in 2015 when it became the regional hub for the JMK Directors Group. Philip shares the Sherman’s passion for nurturing emerging talent and as a result the Carne Trust now generously supports the JMK Trust and Sherman Theatre's Directors Group, and New Welsh Playwrights Programme.
Rachel O’Riordan has said “I am so delighted that Philip has won this award, recognising him as one of the real advocates for Welsh art and artists. His generosity is unbounded; of spirit, as much as financially. Sherman Theatre is the better for knowing him, and so grateful for his friendship and support. Congratulations Philip. Diolch, my friend.”
