2021 Give!Guide for Creative Expression

3

Support Creative Expression by the Deaf community and made accessible and inclusive for all!

Mission

CymaSpace makes arts, media and culture accessible and inclusive to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing through technology, education and outreach. Through strategic partnerships and community support, we advocate for access, inclusion and equity.  

Bottom Line for Portland

As a Deaf-focused performance venue and technology incubator, CymaSpace helps people SEE sound through art installations and stage sets that synergize sound, light and vibration. Our exciting performances that involve ALL THE SENSES provide access at the intersection of arts and technology for a mix of Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and hearing audiences. With inclusion and accessibility built into the planning and execution of arts, media and cultural events, the Deaf and Hard of Hearing are able to bring their talents to the table as full participants in the Portland-metro lived experience.

Quote

“I can only imagine how amazing it would be if all performing spaces had this kind of installations, maybe even at a bigger scale. You are doing some awesome work!” – Elitza Todorova

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

CymaSpace’s live and online productions empower and promote Deaf performers, technicians and volunteers to advance their skills and use their talents in support of the CymaSpace mission. Our Deaf-led operations, filming and technical teams create accessible and inclusive media content that engages with local and national Deaf and Hard of Hearing/Intersecting BIPOC communities.
