Iraqi Kurdistan

Dispel your misconceptions of Iraq with this hour-long armchair travel presentation through one of the world's most notoriously newsworthy regions. Through a combination of facts, photos and memoir reflections, hear a first-hand account of building a life in a post-conflict war zone.

The 'Other' Holy Land

Explore the shared heritage of revered Christian and Jewish sites in Iraq from Babel to Babylon and beyond. In the process, discover a surprising diversity of faith across the Middle East, and even within your own faith tradition.

Agents of Change

Based on 5 years of practice-based inquiry connecting elite Iraqi high-school students with disenfranchised local refugees, this half-hour presentation blends personal stories with current issues surrounding the global refugee crisis, the role of service-learning in education, and how to cultivate empathy in leadership.
