Oregon Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Oregon Humanities, formerly the Oregon Council for the Humanities, was established in 1971 and is one of five statewide partners of the Oregon Cultural Trust. Programs include Oregon Humanities magazine, The Conversation Project, Humanity in Perspective, Teacher Institutes, Happy Camp, Think & Drink and a grants program.
Oregon Humanities connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities.


Oregon Humanities’ programs and publications provide a forum for individuals and communities to raise questions, challenge assumptions, listen to others, and think critically about the issues that directly impact their lives and those of the people around them. These programs are designed to inspire insights, or what we call “O. Hm.” moments.


The impact of this work is profound — participants listen, question, rethink and consider more deeply and, as a result, act from a place of knowledge, compassion, connectedness and personal responsibility.
