The NAMI is a non-profit organization that aims to use art as a vehicle for social transformation, we promote through our projects the rights of women, blacks, indigenous peoples, LGBTQIAP+ people and people with disabilities. The organization was created in 2010 as a result of the desire of its founder, artist Panmela Castro, to contribute to the end of violence against women and promote the role of women in the arts. NAMI carries out a groundwork, seeking to stimulate the leadership potential of groups marginalized by society in different areas, and is directly aligned with 3 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, to build a less unequal and more sustainable world.
