Due to the state of emergency we are currently experiencing, the grant cycle for FY 2021 has been delayed.

Inspiring creativity and expression since 1967...

The Guam Council on the Arts and Humanities Agency was established in 1967 by the late Dr. Pedro Sanchez under the University of Guam and was then called the Insular Arts Council (IAC). The agency was dedicated to the development of programs in music, visual arts, cultural heritage, literature, and arts education.

Guam CAHA's programs are numerous and include the issuance of grants to individuals and organizations for the perpetuation of the arts and culture of our island, such as folk arts projects, visual arts displays and exhibits, and music and theatre productions to name a few.



During these challenging times, in an effort to better understand the community of artists on Guam, CAHA has created this survey to inform us of the capabilities, practice and needs of Guam’s artists. Please take a moment to complete and submit this short survey. Your response will help us as we plan and develop future programs and activities.
