CHQ Assembly is the digital expression of Chautauqua Institution — a nonprofit organization that exists to explore the best in human values and the enrichment of life. This exploration takes place in an interdisciplinary and intergenerational way that is characterized by a unique commitment to upholding the dignity and contributions of all people. We invite you to join us in exploring critical issues of the day through a range of experiences — lectures, artistic experiences, master and enrichment courses, and conversations — that combine to call you to your best self for a better world.
Join us online at CHQ Assembly during the Path Through History weekend to learn about the rich, intriguing, and sometimes hilarious history of Chautauqua Institution. Our 17-part Heritage Lecture series covers everything from Chautauqua’s connection to Women’s Suffrage movement, to the visits of Amelia Earhart and Booker T. Washington. Learn how this historic institution has evolved and thrived for nearly 150 years. The series is available free of charge at assembly.chq.org October 9-11.
About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
