Welcome to the CymaSpace collective.

Are you a painter, dancer, photography, poet, musician, performer or any other type of Deaf/Hard of Hearing creative person? CymaSpace, a Portland based non-profit performance venue has a mission to make the arts accessible to all and in particular has an on-going program to support the Deaf community and equal access to live performing arts such as music, dance, theatre and more.

CymaSpace and this meetup group is focused on radically inclusive events we encourage all levels of hearing, Deaf or artistic abilities to join the group and attend events for a unique opportunity to meet people from very different world-views and perspectives.

Some typical events include:

  • DeafJams - A stage for ASL poetry and non-verbal/sign-based performances
  • Silent Shows - Live performances where light, vibration and headphones change up expectations for how music & other performance arts can be perceived.
  • HackJams - Explorations into technology to make music, sound & speech more accessible to Hard of Hearing performers & audiences
  • Socials - Arts themed ASL meet-up for artists to network & socialize ... and more!

Please sign up to this group if you would like to be notified of any of these upcoming events or contact us at www.cymaspace.org/contact if you have any questions.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
