The We Are More (WAM) Exhibition is an exciting new touring photography exhibit showcasing, celebrating, and creating conversations about the benefits of diversity and inclusion in southeastern Minnesota’s regional economy. WAM is the creation of Journey to Growth’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, whose goal is to help us fully embrace and capitalize on our region’s unique mix of races, ethnicities, cultures, faiths, and lifestyles.
We invite you to submit your photos for the WAM Exhibition. Selected images will be included in the exhibit as it travels throughout southeastern Minnesota in Spring 2017. Images will be judged on their depiction of economic diversity and inclusivity in the region. (Amateur and professional photographer submissions will be judged separately.)
Look around your community and capture photos that highlight diversity and inclusivity in the workplace, recreational activities, or public spaces, for example. The setting is up to you; let what resonates with you be your guide!
