Telling Stories, Creating Community: Understanding the Legacies of War at Home

A year-long project to initiate dialogues on the legacies of war in the Fargo-Moorhead, North Dakota communities through two public forums and a series of public programs. The project would also support the establishment of an oral history archive, the creation of a community book discussion program, and a series of literary and ceramics workshops.

Telling Stories, Creating Community: Understanding the Legacies of War at Home is a one-year program to initiate dialogues on the legacies of war in the Fargo-Moorhead and North Dakota communities. The project aims to: a) increase the understanding of the legacies of war through the sharing of experiences of war veterans and families of war veterans; b) create spaces for veterans and families of veterans to tell their stories through oral histories, memoir workshops, and craft and community conversations; and c) foster community building through dialogues between veterans, families of veterans, and the larger community.
