web banner

The Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County and the Fargo-Moorhead Visual Artists have brought a new exhibit to the museum at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead, The FMVA’s Annual Constraint Show, now in its 5th year.

This year’s show features the theme Labels, which challenged many of the artists to think about the labels in our society and what that means to them. Each artist interpretation is impressive and unique, they represent the variety of labels in our world but also the fabulous artist we have right here, in our own community. Throughout this exhibit you will see two and three-dimensional works with a wide variety of interpretations.

The FMVA is also hosting an Opening Reception on Nov. 4 from 5-7pm to celebrate the new exhibit; this event is free and open the public.

Housing First: No Excuses, a lecture by Dr. Iain de Jong

FMCHP Logo_654 430grad webHousing First: No Excuses, a lecture by Dr. Iain de Jong in the Hjemkomst Center  auditorium.

Housing First is an international best-practice housing philosophy that advocates housing people as quickly as possible, based on most appropriate setting, and allowing the reduction in life stress that results from stable housing to lead people to want to make other changes in their lives (Harm Reduction model; Trauma-Informed Care model). Housing First says the service providers will do all they can to keep people housed. Many current practices are more likely to evict for violations of policy.

To register, contact Laurie Baker, Executive Director, FM Coalition for Homeless Persons, directorfmchp@gmail.com, 701-200-0855.

Participants in these events can view the House & Home exhibit for free during this event.
