PAMM Teen Arts Council (PTAC)

The PAMM Teen Arts Council (PTAC) is a teen-led, museum facilitated program for youth interested in all things creative. PTAC members help fulfill the Pérez Art Museum Miami's (PAMM) mission to encourage everyone to see art as an incentive for genuine human interaction, communication, and exchange.  Through Ambassadorship, Mentorship and Digital Citizenship, teen members creatively interpret and respond to art in order to engage local and global teen audiences.
