Nathaniel Hurd '99, president of the board of directors of Education for Peace in Iraq Center (EPIC), is working with a leading education expert to bring Photovoice to 20 Iraqi young adults (ages 10-25). Photovoice combines photography and social action, asking participants to share their experiences through a photographic narrative and start a discussion.  Photovoice has positively impacted communities including inner-city Cleveland, Haiti, and Sierra Leone.

 

Hurd hopes that the project will give voices to the 60% of the Iraqi population who are under 25 years old, many of whom have first-hand experience with violence.  The conclusions will be presented at a public exhibition in Iraq to which top policy-makers, education officials, youth organizations, and the media will be invited.  There will also be an online gallery, so that the stories can spread.

At Hamilton, Hurd majored in world politics. He went on to earn his master's in communications studies from Columbia School of International and Public Affairs. He is now a policy advisor at World Vision, a large international relief, development, and advocacy organization, and has more than 12 years experience in international humanitarian and national security issues.
