PST, THIRD COAST IS BACK THIS FALL — in a new, virtual world. Join us for much-needed audio community & inspiration in: Third Place.

Tara Aliya Kesavan

Tara Aliya Kesavan is a New York-based artist & the 2020 Third Coast Digital Engagement & Design Assistant.

Her work spans films, photographs, drawings and works on fabric. Born and brought up in New Delhi, a theme central to her practice is the personal and political lives of urban Indian women. As the pandemic forces us to think up new ways of sharing space, she is presently preoccupied by how we can employ the web canvas to design collective viewing and listening experiences.


Third Coast International Audio Festival, or Third Coast, is an independent nonprofit arts organization based in Chicago, serving a global community of storytellers and makers. Since our founding in 2000, we have steadfastly advocated for the medium of audio, the art and craft of sonic storytelling, and the people who build our world in sound.
