The World in Fargo-Moorhead is a community project designed to raise awareness about the diversity of people living in the FM community. The project consists of photographs and quotes from people who are foreign-born but now live in the FM area. They may be immigrants, refugees, international students or workers on temporary visas. They may have lived here 50 years or one day. This exhibit will be on display in the concourse at the downtown location of the Fargo Public Library from September 6th – October 28th.

A reception and photographer’s talk is scheduled for Thursday, September 22 from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Community Room at the downtown Fargo Public Library. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact Lori West at

This exhibit is part of Welcoming Week: Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, and the 1 Book 1 Community event series.
Partners for this project include the Fargo Public Library, The Arts Partnership, the New American Consortium for Wellness and Empowerment, and the North Dakota Humanities Council.
