Chautauqua Open Call!

20 Feb 2015

The New Mexico Humanities Council is requesting new proposals for the Chautauqua and Speakers Bureau Program. Presentations bring history to life through a performance by a scholar/performer posing as a historical figure; or an expert speaker on an intriguing topic!

You can find more information by clicking, "2015 Chautauqua Program Requests Proposals." (it is an off shoot category from the "Chautauqua" tab on the left hand column)

For questions or concerns, please contact, Jacobo Baca at 505.633.7371 or
