German students from the Universität Erfurt, in collaboration with the Fargo Park District’s Broadway Square and Würst Bier Hall, will bring an innovative mobile exhibit about climate change to Broadway Square in Downtown Fargo on Saturday, June 3 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. The exhibit, HEARTLAND’S FUTURE: How Can We Live Together on a Changing Planet?, features a series of engaging presentations and panel discussions, exploring the latest research, innovative solutions, and practical actions that can help mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change.
Also onboard the BUS-eum is the TRACES Center for History and Culture’s exhibit HIDDEN AND FORBIDDEN NO MORE: Prequels to the Greatest Generation, 1914-41, which highlights five forgotten moments in history that shaped America’s Heartland for generations to follow. This includes The Kaiser (anti-German hysteria in WWI), The Klan (“America’s White Cancer”), The Killer (the global influenza pandemic of 1918-19), The Cow Wars (farmer rebellions during the Great Depression), and The Whiskey Cookers (Prohibition-era bootlegging).
Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the bus, interact with the exhibits and exchange perspectives on the past and future of the Heartland and the world at large with German Students and their Iowa-born museum director.
The BUS-eum is free of charge and open to the public. Donations are accepted and can be made as either cash or via “Square” QR-codes provided at the showing site.
Broadway Square is located at 201 Broadway N, Fargo. For more information visit FargoBroadwaySquare.com or call 701-551-5898.
