As human beings, we look for common experiences and want to share our experiences—that’s what writing is all about. You tell someone a story and they try to relate that to their own lives—there's a communal experience. We're trying to puzzle out the meaning of the world around us—that’s what the humanities is all about.

Board of Trustees

Humanities Washington's Board of Trustees

Humanities Washington is governed by a board of trustees who represent the many key constituencies crucial to our work: museums, heritage organizations, universities, scholarly organizations, professional groups, schools, foundations, and corporations. 

One in six trustees are appointed by the Governor, and the remainder elected from nominations submitted by partners and the general public. Members are drawn from across Washington and represent the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the state. Trustees are elected for renewable three-year terms, serve on at least two committees, and generally have a history of engagement with Humanities Washington. 

Nominations may be submitted to Executive Director Julie Ziegler.
