The World in Fargo-Moorhead shows the immense diversity of foreign-born residents now living in the Red River Valley—one portrait and story at a time. Modeled after Humans of New York, the project features portraits and interviews of immigrants, refugees, students and/or workers on temporary visas who live in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The World in Fargo-Moorhead officially launched in September 2016 as an exhibit for Welcoming Week at the Main Public Library in downtown Fargo. It was created as a collaborative effort among photo enthusiasts to raise awareness about the range of cultures that define our area.
Anyone interested in participating in the project can email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message on the project’s Facebook page. Newcomers are welcome to attend the project’s monthly meetings every third Wednesday of the month from 7 – 8 p.m. in the Fercho conference room at the Fargo Public Library, 102 N 3rd St., Fargo.
