As a BIPOC led organization, the DAI celebrates the cultural confluence in NE MN. Since before the actual development of cities in NE MN, the shores of Lake Superior and the land to Canada, the Anishinaabe have hosted a myriad of peoples. Trade, cultural exchange, community, medicine, and art were shared among peoples from across the globe. 

The following are the change makers, connectors, truth tellers, stabilizers of community, mobilizers, unifiers, ideators. Artists are the first to give and the last to take. Artists give a face to movements. Artists bring hope. Find the hidden story. Artists educate. Save lives. Give life. Artists bring prosperity. Rise above. Artists heal. Artists remember. Artists inspire.

The DAI is honored to share with you the amazing BIPOC artists in the NE MN region. We continue to update our list. Please contact cwoods@duluthartinstitute.org for more information.
