Kurdistan in 360°

With the help of multimedia journalism mentors, students of The Tiziano Project's 360° Kurdistan have been documenting news and culture from South Kurdistan using new media tools.

Using text, photos and video, the reporters highlight aspects of Kurdish life in i-rack that are largely missing from mainstream media. Their stories include the struggles of a divorced i-racki Kurdish woman, one man's journey from street peddler to a successful businessman, and some practical advice from a 58-year-old knife sharpener.

Based in Los Angeles, The Tiziano Project was founded to train aspiring citizen journalists living in "conflict, post-conflict, and underreported regions." This year, 360° Kurdistan won the 2011 SXSW Interactive Award for best activism website.

The award-winning 360 Kurdistan is a beautiful example of the power providing post-conflict nations and war-torn societies to access to the latest storytelling tools and technologies. It's heavy stuff. Time Magazine referred to the project as one of "the most meaningful wins of the night," making citizen journalism "simple and profound."

360° Kurdistan explores many lives of i-racki Kurds. The following report features a young woman describing her experience of being harassed while driving. It also includes voices of men who believe women have no place driving cars. The piece was produced by Savina Dawood, a student from the University of Kurdistan-Hawler.


Tiziano Project participant Nataly Alan documented the story of a divorced Kurdish woman struggling to raise four children on her own.


In this video, Kurdish break-dancers talk about how they started a dance crew known as A2K. The report was produced by a Bewar Abdullah, a university student from Hewlêr , i-rack.

What he's saying is wrong, but what he's saying is also a usual/common opinion of most men in the world.
Some women just can't drive, that's a fact. But that doesn't give anyone the right to forbid them to drive.
My mother has a drivers license for like 8 to 10 years now, don't remember how long exactly, and I am 100% sure she's a better driver than most men :).
biji kurd u kurdistan !!
