WHO RUNS THE WORLD?

CityPress - - Opportunity index - GRETHE KOEN grethe.koen@city­press.co.za

In hon­our of Women’s Month, Joburg-based graphic de­signer David Tsha­bal­ala is cre­at­ing Run The World. It com­prises 31 por­traits of women he ad­mires – one for each day of the month. What’s cool about the col­lec­tion, which he calls an “in­sta­bi­tion” be­cause he is post­ing the por­traits on In­sta­gram, is that these women aren’t the typ­i­cal pub­lic fig­ures you would ex­pect to see in a Women’s Month trib­ute.

In­stead, they are women who have per­son­ally af­fected Tsha­bal­ala. As we have our own per­sonal hero­ines – ones who may not be on the cover of mag­a­zines – Tsha­bal­ala has his. Women like Sher­ilea Gas­par, a skate­board­ing mum who has shared mag­i­cal moments with the best rap­pers and mu­si­cians in this coun­try through her pho­tog­ra­phy; and Lu­funo Sathekge, who works in mar­ket­ing and whose “pen­chant for all things beau­ti­ful and stylish is re­flected through her warm per­son­al­ity”. We love this ini­tia­tive and we love Tsha­bal­ala for do­ing it.
