“Resilient Together” Community Mosaic Project
MINOT, N.D. – Ten years after the impact of the 2011 Souris River Flood, the City of Minot is working on bringing people together from across the region to reflect on the progress and healing that makes up these communities.
The Mouse River Anniversary Committee is working to bring those affected by the flood together both online and in person later this month with the “Resilient Together” Community Mosaic Project.
Community members are being asked to submit their photos and stories of recovery to be compiled online in a virtual mosaic.
Photos can be submitted until June 14 at www.mouseriveranniversary.com.
Community members will also have the opportunity to assemble a real version at the “Thursdays Downtown” and “Resiliency Together” events at Oak Park on June 26.
The real-life mosaic will then be displayed publicly across affected areas and at larger events like the State Fair.
Organizers are also asking people to send photos other than that of a damaged community.
“We want people to put on those big celebratory moments when they returned home, or some of the aspects of how they helped clean up things like the Zoo or Oak Park afterward. Let’s not forget about everything else that has happened since that time to move our community forward,” said Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma.
Sipma said some activities surrounding the “Resilient Together” event are still in the works.
Community members are encouraged to check online here for updates.
