The World in Fargo-Moorhead has built community for years now as a collaborative photo and story project in the mold of “Humans of New York.” However, instead of highlighting the human face of the Big Apple, the World in Fargo-Moorhead explores diversity in the Fargo-Moorhead area one person and one story at a time. A print exhibition from project managers The Human Family features some of these stories, now on display at the Hjemkomst Center.
