The Human Family is proud to be a fiscal sponsor for the community photography and story project, The World in Fargo-Moorhead. The World in Fargo-Moorhead explores the diversity of the Red River Valley one photo and one story at a time, featuring area residents who have joined those communities from other parts of the world.
Photographs and stories are collected through amateur and professional photographers and journalist, and shared online via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Selected images are also printed and framed for traveling exhibitions throughout the Fargo-Moorhead community. Images and stories may also be found monthly via the online community magazine, Fargo Monthly.
The World in Fargo-Moorhead currently has a fundraiser to help with costs associated with the organization’s second exhibition, scheduled for the fall of 2017. To learn more about the fundraiser or to make a 100% tax-deductible donation, visit their Crowdrise page.
