Latin American Cultural Week (LACW) in New York is a yearly city-wide event celebrating Latin American culture in venues throughout New York City. This year's events will take place between November 5 and 21 in all five boroughs of New York City. LACW is produced by PAMAR (Pan American Musical Art Research, Inc. - http://www.pamar.org). Partnering with many of the City's most prestigious cultural institutions, their goal is to present the highest quality art and artists to the broadest cross-section of the community. This years' schedule includes events in visual arts, auctions, artist's talks and panel discussions, book presentations, dance, literature, multimedia, music and theater.
