From Northwest Deaf Arts Festival Website:

On June 16th 2018, we 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 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), dance sensation Antoine Hunter (Urban Jazz Dance), immersive multimedia performer Myles de Bastion & award winning poet Raymond Luczak.

The Northwest Deaf Arts Festival serves to create bridges between the Deaf and the Hearing in a positive way that open doors for under-served minorities, changes misconceptions about Deafness and is striving to make a real, socio-economic difference within the community.

In line with our mission at CymaSpace, we can't wait to show you how lowering barriers that prevent equal access to art and culture, everyone benefits. See you in June!
