PAMAR

Celebrating the Cultures of the Americas

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.
