Currently working as Performing Arts Manager at Aga Khan Museum based in Toronto, Canada.

The aim of the Aga Khan Museum is to offer unique insights and new perspectives into Islamic civilizations and the cultural threads that weave through history.



Umair Jaffar is also the founder of the Pakistan based non profit organization called Institute for Preservation of Art and Culture (also known as IPAC). IPAC works for the preservation and promotion of traditional art forms of Pakistan.

IPAC is working on programs to reintroduce the various art traditions of Pakistan to a newer and wider assortment of audiences, particularly cultivating a younger generation of followers who will ensure the survival of the dying arts. IPAC’s Schools of Harmony is one such program which aims to bring traditional performing arts to schools and aims to incorporate various aspects of these arts in the school curriculum.
