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.

Stories that Work

WHAT: Third Coast takes part in Let's Get Working, University of Chicago's upcoming festival celebrating Studs Terkel

WHEN: Saturday, May 10, 2pm

WHERE: Logan Center for the Arts, 915 East 60th, Chicago

TIX: Free, no reservations required

Most of us spend the better part of our days and our lives at work… yet even those closest to us might not know what exactly we do, how it makes us feel and defines us. Inspired by Working, Johanna Zorn of the Third Coast International Audio Festival presents a program of radio stories that, in Studs Terkel’s words, “reveal the search for daily meaning as well as daily bread.”
