Event Description

Worth a Thousand Words: Bringing People and Cultures Together Through Photography Tuesday, November 14 – Noon to 1 p.m. At age 14, Mirza Kudic and his parents escaped the Bosnian War, fleeing to the United States. Mirza learned English, graduated from high school, and spent four years in the Army. He served in Iraq, and found readjusting to civilian life difficult. Several years later, he picked up a camera and tapped into his creativity. Since then, Mirza has garnered a large following on social media for his Des Moines photography, and he formed Des Moines Photo Adventures. The organization brings people from all over Iowa for free photography lessons from Mirza. Des Moines Photo Adventures provides these photographers with a way to meet others who share their interests and passions; make new friends; and learn from one another. Mirza will discuss his photography program and the positive impact it’s made on his own life. The Iowa Internationa Center, in partnership with Meredith Corporation, will host the Dialogue Series at the Meredith Conference Core. The Dialogue is open to the public and will be from noon to one o’clock, so feel free to bring your lunch! The Iowa International Dialogue Series focuses on current international topics and brings local and global experts to provide perspectives on the issues. At the end of the discussion audience members are able to participate by asking questions to the experts
