Sally Markham MNZM, 1943-2013, was Massive Company’s patron, long time champion and collaborator. When Sally passed away, she generously left Massive Company funds from her estate to go towards benefiting young people in the performing arts and this is the basis of The Markham Grant.
This grant is about celebrating her life and all it entailed.
