Sumaya Hisham at St Georges Cathedral

'#TUTU' opens this month at the St George’s Cathedral where the celebrated human rights activist offers church services on Fridays.

The exhibition comprises views from the lense of local freelance photojournalist Sumaya Hisham. It is part of a range of events held in relation to Women’s Day next month. Hisham has been documenting Tutu’s public life for almost five years. As a photojournalist she has reported for international news agencies on his activities.

'#TUTU' is supported by UCT’s Centre for Curating the Archive and the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation.

Hisham’s photos will be sold to raise funds to fix the roof of the St George’s Cathedral and also to assist the work of the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation.

The exhibition opens to the public on August 5 at 4pm, with Tutu in attendance.
