Vale Chrissy Sharp

Vale Chrissy Sharp –  (25 Jan 1951 – 2 Nov 2021)

Sydney Community Foundation and Be Kind Sydney extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Chrissy Sharp. 

Chrissy was widely admired and revered as a leading arts administrator, most recently as Chief Executive Officer of Sydney Writers Festival. Known for her fierce intellect, charm and candour, her career took her around the world. She died at her home in Bronte surrounded by her loving family. 

Deeply loved wife of Michael and adored mother of Christopher, Eddie and Ella. Grandmother to Ziggy and Ezra. Sister to Jenny, Patrick and David, Daughter of Ted and Irene Hannan (dec). 

She will always be missed.

Her family invite you to make a donation to Be Kind Sydney in lieu of flowers, so they can continue her legacy of generosity supporting local communities.
