CymaSpace is a Deaf-focused technology hub. The CymaSpace mission is to make arts and cultural events accessible and inclusive to the Deaf and hard of hearing and allied community through technology, education and outreach. We produce events, advocate, offer consultation and enhance access.
Bottom Line for Portland
CymaSpace productions empower and promote Deaf people. The 2018 Northwest Deaf Arts Festival showcased a diverse selection of local and national Deaf performers. The event was the first in the Northwest to be fully accessible to Deaf and hearing people, engaging six coordinators, 16 volunteers, nine technicians and 330 attendees.
“CymaSpace is a wonderful organization, with a message of inclusiveness and access. CymaSpace produced a workshop for my Deaf students, and it was amazing! I am impressed by their dedication and creativity. My students will remember experiencing sound in different ways from the talented staff.” —Kelsey Mahaney, teacher of the Deaf
