PAMAR’s annual LACW events are attended by approximately 20,000
individuals, for events both produced by PAMAR, co-produced, or promoted
by PAMAR, through a worldwide promotional and marketing campaign. It is
made possible in part with funding from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment
Zone and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). This
program is also supported, in part, by public funds from The New York
City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City
Council, a Discretionary Grant through the office of New York City
Councilmember Ydanis Rodriguez, and a grant from NYC & Company
Foundation through the Office of Manhattan Borough President Gale

PAMAR’s Mission is to promote and preserve, and create awareness and
appreciation of, Latin American arts and culture and their roots in
Iberia, Africa, Arabic and other cultures, in New York City and beyond.
PAMAR serves performing, visual and film, and literary artists eager to
expand awareness of and appreciation for their work.  We serve audiences
familiar with these art forms, while developing audiences often unused
to them, collaborating with libraries, houses of worship, government
agencies, schools, community centers, as well as traditional performing,
visual arts, literary, and film venues, and festivals.
Founded in 1984 by Uruguayan-born pianist Polly Ferman, PAMAR was
originally focused on promoting Latin American classical-to-contemporary
composers, often little known outside their native countries.  PAMAR has
expanded to include choreographers and dancers, traditional arts,
indigenous arts and artists, and spoken word and film.
