David Suchet

Co President

“Alan Rickman and I worked together in Rep
at Birmingham and at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

He was, also, a loyal friend.

I am proud to fill his shoes by becoming President of IPAT,
a small charity with mighty ambitions. IPAT’s charitable activities demonstrate how little actions can go a long way in making
a positive contribution to the world at large.

Creativity, humanity and community are the troika that underpin
the projects we support across five continents and I hope
you will help me improve the lives of performers.

Creativity takes courage, but it also takes funding, and it is
our sole aim to remove some of the practical obstacles
that often stand in these artists’ way.”
