Organized by the Historical Society of Southern California (HSSC), this interdisciplinary conference is about how Latinos are shaping and restructuring three main themes in Los Angeles: community, the arts, and education. What major challenges face Latino communities today? How do artists address key issues and themes among Angelenos? How effective are educational institutions in meeting the needs and concerns of the Latino community? Speakers from universities, the arts, and media will engage in a dialogue on the contemporary Latino experience in Los Angeles. All are welcome!
Film clips and music form part of the program. Tickets, which include continental breakfast, a boxed lunch, and refreshments, are $40 for members of the HSSC and the Autry, $55 for non-members, and $15 for students. Tickets at the door are $65.
