The Northern Mirror is brought to you by:

The Red River Creatives Collective (RRCC) is a fluid, umbrella entity for the Northern MN and ND arts scene, operating out of the Fargo/Moorhead area. This is intended to be a community-driven organizing space focused on prioritizing and uplifting disenfranchised voices, and creating solidarity among creatives.

Through both print and online publication of The Northern Mirror we strive to create a platform for experimental and under-represented artists in all disciplines, as well as a way to disseminate information regarding community resources, and cultural and educational opportunities.

RRCC strives to be an unconventional, multi-disciplinary arts organization that does not conform to the status quo. Our work is the building up and promoting of creators without the oppressive and classist nature of institutions and mainstream arts sector. We aim for flexibility and the ability to adapt to our changing community needs.

It is no easy task to organize and complete a quarterly publication, both online and in print, and it certainly isn’t possible without the content provided by those that submit. We are eternally grateful for the creative contributions we collect, the ongoing interest of our readers, and the donations we receive to aid in funding this project. We understand the difficulties of navigating life, and we hope that this issue brings some light back into our organizing spaces. The theme seemed to be approachable and garnered a variety of exciting submissions from local community members. Please take some time to peruse this zine and follow the social media links.

    What comes to mind when we say “eco”?

This theme is meant to be an inspirational guide with which contributors may base their submissions on. It is not meant to be a concrete thing to limit one’s work. Contributors are free to interpret the theme and incorporate it into their work at their own discretion.
