Join us for an (free) afternoon of friendship, food, photos, and fun (for adults and kids). Sunday, August 13th from 1-4 p.m., The World in Fargo-Moorhead is hosting an International Speed Friending event at Rabanus Park in Fargo.
1:00 – 2:00 International Speed Friending. Sit with people from all over the world and learn about them. We will have seven sessions of eight minutes each for you to sit across from someone you don’t know and get to know about them and their culture. Conversation starters will be available at each table.
2:00 – 3:00 PM Food! Join us for a delicious buffet of Nepalese food provided by Everest Tikka House of Moorhead.
3:00 – 4:00 PM Instant Photo Booth and Share-Your-Story Stand. Have your picture taken by one of our photographers and have it instantly printed in our photo booth! This is also an opportunity to learn about The World in Fargo-Moorhead, a project which showcases diversity in the Red River Valley by taking pictures and recording the stories of those born abroad. The World in Fargo-Moorhead shares these pictures and stories on social media and in a traveling art exhibit. If you are interested in sharing your story with The World in Fargo-Moorhead, or if you’d like to volunteer with us in any capacity, come talk to some of our photographers and interviewers.
The World in Fargo-Moorhead shows the diversity of our area one portrait and one story at a time. These photos and stories are posted weekly to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We also create exhibits that are shown at libraries, churches and other public spaces.
