Year round support for your creative projects

CYMASPACE Lab members (PATRONS) have access to these resources year-round in tandem with support and mentorship from CymaSpace volunteer staff. 

The Lab is the result of the DHH community and its allies efforts to produce events, educate the public, provide social support, and invent new and exciting ways to “see sound.” Since 2013, the CymaSpace Lab has been a central hub of innovation as the Deaf and Maker community partners to create immersive art projects. Deaf people are mentored and taught marketable skills by our staff. Committed volunteers come together to make large events happen, igniting Deaf cultural pride in the Northwest. When the community is involved and encouraged, lives are transformed.

Lab Program Development is possible thanks to support from Regional Arts & Culture Council.
