Vale George Mannix 
12/11/1951 - 10/10/2018

We’re sad to announce that George Mannix passed away on Wednesday 10th October. George was an integral and important part of PACT’s community. He literally grew up around the company, as his father Jack co-founded PACT in 1964. Over the years, George worked across all levels of the company, as a performer, director, Board member and Artistic Director throughout the 80’s and 90’s. Hundreds, if not thousands, of artists, arts workers and participants benefitted from George’s hard work and dedication. PACT is here today because of George. 

There will be a public memorial for George Mannix in the coming weeks. We will posted details as soon as we receive them. 

All our thoughts and wishes are with George’s family, loved ones and friends.
