Saint Paul skyline

GIA welcomes you to Saint Paul, a community built at the con­fluence of the Minnesota River and the Missis­sippi River – the birth­place of the Dakota and home to the Ojibwe/​Anishi­naabe people. This historic city, and its “twin” Min­neapolis, are experi­encing renewed vitality and growth throughout their urban core and neighbor­hoods. Explore and learn about a region that is known for its high rate of civic engagement with nationally recog­nized leader­ship in private, public, and corporate phil­anthropy. Join your colleagues on the shores of the Missis­sippi River and experience a culturally rich and diverse place where artists and the arts of many cultures are central to this vibrant community.
