Latin American Cultural Week - About PAMAR

Pan American Musical Art Research is a 501(c) (3) organization founded in 1984 to promote awareness of and appreciation for the cultures of Latin America by sponsoring and presenting multi-disciplinary performances and events to a broad audience of all ages, and racial cultural and economic backgrounds in the Tri-state area, in collaboration with local arts and culture organizations. Our mission is to share the rich cultural heritage of Latin America and the Latin American diaspora by showcasing music, dance, theatre, film literature and visual arts representing or influenced by Latin American culture. We also seek to provide increased exposure and performing opportunities for Latino artists.

The core project in our programming is Latin American Cultural Week presented annually since 2006 throughout New York City. During 2012, we presented 19 music/dance performances, 8 theatre performances, 11 visual arts exhibitions, 11 lectures and literature programs an art fair and 2 art auctions. Participating institutions have included Americas Society, Instituto Cervantes, Reportorio Espanol, Sotheby's, World Music Institute among others. In 2012 we presented Latin America Week programs in Washington Heights for the first time. We plan to expand our work in this area in 2013.
