We advocate for DHH access by serving Portland’s dynamic arts and culture community.
In 2016, two Portland Deaf ladies wanted to attend a concert. They asked the concert manager to provide a sign language interpreter. The manager told them he didn’t know where to hire interpreters and turned to CymaSpace for help. As a response to this need, the CymaSpace Access Program was born. Now we advocate for DHH access by serving Portland’s dynamic arts and culture community.
Northwest Deaf and hard-of-hearing people love to attend concerts, theater events, and other cultural happenings. Many arts organizations want to include DHH people in their events by providing communication access, but lack the resources to provide services. Many arts organizations are small with limited budgets. CymaSpace steps in by providing sign language interpreters, Open Captioning services and micro grant awards.
Sign Language Interpreters are preferred by deaf and hard of hearing individuals that speak Sign Language.
