Join MINN for an inside look of The Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project. Through the Iraqi Art Project, they bring art and culture from the Cradle of Civilization to the United States. IARP brings Iraqi and American artists together in dialogue and creates a platform for the support of Iraqi art in an effort to support the rebuilding of culture and the recording of stories. IARP has presented Iraqi and American visual art, film, book art, theater, lectures, and panel discussions at more than 50 galleries and public spaces, displaying more than 450 pieces of art from the Najaf and Karbala areas of Iraq. Space is limited, RSVP here!
MINN is looking to engage new Board members for the 2018 calendar year. Leaders are being sought to help MINN work toward its vision of being the leader in providing a collaborative environment for Minnesota-based international NGOs. Since being granted 501(c) (3) status in 2011, leadership has been striving to develop the organization’s structure and nurtures its growth so that it may more effectively act as a forum for international practitioners and supporters to learn, network and exchange professional expertise.
Each year, MINN brings together global innovators and international development practitioners for the annual MINN Summit. A unique opportunity to connect, share, and learn, the Summit is an engaging experience that promotes networking and partnerships.
We’re thrilled when we hear from attendees about successful partnerships coming to fruition from attending the Summit, and we recently received one such example from our friends at Compatible Technology International (CTI) and The Improve Group (TIG).
