Latine & Hispanic Heritage Month

Latine & Hispanic Heritage Month

CHQ Assembly offers a collection of programming featuring lectures, conversations and experiences from people with ancestry from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.

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.
