Crossing Bridges’ principal partner is PAMAR Inc. – Pan American Musical Art Research – a not-for-profit 501c3 charitable organization founded by Uruguayan-born pianist Polly Ferman to promote lesser-known classical-to-contemporary composers of Latin America.  The full scope of PAMAR’s work may be found at PAMAR serves as the Fiscal Partner of Crossing Bridges.  More than the familiar model of the “Fiscal Sponsor,”  there is active interactivity between the programs and personnel of PAMAR and Crossing Bridges.  That is why application fees to the Tlacopac International Artist Residency are processed through PAMAR.
