In August 2021, Dulwich Centre Foundation offered a series of workshops for Kurdish and Iraqi colleagues at the Jiyan Foundation in Kurdistan, Iraq. These online workshops involved colleagues seeking to respond to the experience of Yazidi community members, many of whom are women who were captured by ISIS and are now seeking to remake their lives. These workshops built on earlier collaborations with the Jiyan Foundation that led to this resource: Responding to survivors of torture and suffering: Survival skills and knowledge if Kurdish families

In the near future, Kurdish narrative practitioner Pshko Marden will be assisting Dulwich Centre Foundation to create a free Kurdish online narrative practice course.
