About Us

Founded in 1991, Guam Humanities Council is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting public humanities programming for the people of Guam. The Council was initially established as a grant making organization, and indeed, since it’s beginning, we have provided community grants every year for local organizations to develop exhibitions, workshops, oral history collections, language preservation projects, and publications. While we continue to provide foundational support for Guam’s people, we also conduct a wide range of humanities-focused programs, projects and activities.
