Listening out in the world
Third Coast listening events (often called "Listening Rooms") present unforgettable audio work in a public setting -- a theater, a coffee shop, a bar -- anywhere with a good set of speakers and where people can gather together and listen. Each event features a special guest and includes a diverse selection of documentary audio work. It’s a little like a book club for radio.
Also! Have docs, will travel. In fact, Have docs, love to travel. The TCF also sponsors and supports other types of audio events in Chicago and beyond. Want us to visit your city or town? Collaborate with your organization? Let us know.
Migration Stories: All roads lead to Chicago
WHEN: Wednesday, March 12 / 6 - 7:30pm
WHAT: An evening of listening and discussion exploring how migration has shaped - and continues to shape - Chicago.
WHERE: Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, Residents' Dining Hall 800 S. Halsted St.
TIX: FREE but reservations are required
For the past year, many Chicagoans have been reading The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration as part of the Chicago Public Library’s One Book, One Chicago program.
Now we’ll hear the voices of Chicagoans who have come to this city over the past 100 years in search of a better life. Hosted by Gwen Macsai, and featuring historian Dr. Timuel Black, the evening will showcase first-person stories and audio gems that explore what it means (and how it sounds) to start over.
As a bonus, StoryCorps will offer a number of special appointments at the Chicago StoryBooth for event attendees to record their stories. Light refreshments will be served.
Jane Addams Hull-House Museum will be opening its doors to event attendees at 5pm - so feel free to come early and enjoy the exhibitions.
This program is presented with the Chicago Public Library’s One Book, One Chicago, Studs Terkel Festival at the University of Chicago, and Jane Addams Hull-House museum. StoryCorps @ your library is a project of the American Library Association and StoryCorps, funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
