Save the date! On June 16th 2018, CymaSpace will be making history. The Northwest Deaf Arts Festival (NWDAF) will bring together top national Deaf artists who share a vision for an inclusive & innovative multi-sensory cultural extravaganza made equally accessible for Deaf & Hearing Allies.
For information and tickets please visit the official website:
For the first time in recent times, Portland Oregon will be placed on the map as a premiere destination for national and emerging local Deaf talent who will perform live on stage, backed by the latest sound visualization and tactile technologies.
The festival line up includes nationally renowned Deaf hip-hop artist Sean Forbes (Deaf & Loud/DPAN), and dance sensation Antoine Hunter (Urban Jazz Dance troupe) & Raymond Luczak (ASL Poet & Writer) and Myles de Bastion (Multimedia artist).
NWDAF is produced by CymaSpace, a Portland based nonprofit consisting of passionate Deaf & hearing community advocates who volunteer year-round to facilitate cultural events inclusive of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing. CymaSpace engineers & artists lend their skills to develop a variety of art installations and stage sets that synergize sound, light, and vibration. The work of CymaSpace has been featured nationally on Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as at festivals like What The Fest?, PDX Winter Light Festival, Kentucky DeaFestival and in prominent local institutions such as Portland Art Museum and Oregon Museum of Science & Industry (OMSI).
We can’t wait to show you what the Deaf World can do! For more information, check our our NWDAF webpage. Ticket information is coming soon. Be sure to include our name on our mailing list so we can keep you up to date: http://www.nwdeafartsfest.com/

We are a leading advocate for accessibility and inclusion within the performing arts. We are constantly striving to find new ways to ensure our venue and events are inclusive, especially to Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing communities.
We provide incubator services for new fledgling organizations and communities that are exploring emerging concepts in combining technology and the arts.
We provide educational opportunities for artists, the general public and other performance venues interested in incorporating our unique, cymatic concepts into their work.
CymaSpace is an epicenter for Cymatic study and we are committed to raising awareness of and promoting the benefits of Cymatics (the science and study of sound made visible).
