Mpho Tutu van Furth is a South African pastor, author, artist, and activist. She is the daughter of Archbishop Desmond and Leah Tutu and the founding director of the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation. Mpho is known throughout the world for her advocacy work on issues including forgiveness, the safety and wellbeing of girls, and same-sex rights.
The Ammerdown Centre was set up as a Centre for peace and reconciliation 50 years ago, bringing people of different Christian denominations and people of different faiths and beliefs together to learn about each other. Over the years, peace talks for Northern Ireland and the Sudan have been held at the Centre, and many appreciate the safe space Ammerdown provides.
Mpho brings her lived experience to Ammerdown and will challenge us to think about the authenticity of forgiveness, reparations and reconciliation in our world. The event will be held on Friday, 3rd November at 7:30pm.
