happenings here, there, everywhere

Since our founding in 2000, Third Coastl has been exploring ways to lift radio off the airwaves bring it into the world, in communal, public spaces. To that end we host listening events in Chicago and beyond: Listening Rooms, the Third Coast Filmless Festival, and assorted audio adventures at schools, community organizations, and other documentary festivals nationwide.

We also organize a biennial conference where audio makers from around the world gather to share skills, experiences, and philosophies, and to build new collaborations. And to dance.
