Use your voice and share your stories! Broadway Square works hard every day to become a treasured community asset and we want to know what the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo community means and looks like to you. Through a collaboration with the Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project, Broadway Square has the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind sketchbook highlighting the community of Fargo and surrounding areas. 

During the month of April, Broadway Square is searching for local artists to fill a 16-page book illustrating, "what community means to you" and "what makes the Broadway Square community unique?" This project will not only exist as a physical book, but is also digitized and shareable all around the world. 

"The [Brooklyn Art Library's] Sketchbook Project is the world's largest library of artists' books, crowd-sourced from every corner of the globe. The project is changing the way creative people share their work while creating a worldwide community resource. By filling a sketchbook, you are joining the movement, adding your voice and becoming a part of something huge. Draw, write, collage, cut, print, photograph - it starts with an idea."

Once the Sketchbook is complete, it will be available on our site, view past Sketchbook Projects here. Stay tuned for updates on the Broadway Square social media pages.

Additional Information

We are looking for, recruiting and selecting participants who want to share what the concept of "community" means to them. Interested artists should submit a Community Sketchbook Project Interest Form. Once artists are selected, pages from Broadway Square's sketchbook are sent out to the selected participants to be filled with images, sketches and words.

Once participants are selected, pages from Broadway Square's sketchbook are sent out to be filled with images, sketches and wordsParticipants must deliver their page back to Broadway Square.

Broadway Square compiles and returns our completed sketchbook to the Brooklyn Art Museum, where it is cataloged, digitized and added to their project inventory. Our sketchbook then tours the country as part of the larger Sketchbook Project, online and on their Bookmobile, appearing through pop-up residencies, drawing events and school visits.
