I Didn't Know That - 10

On a rare sunny day in Seattle, we walk around the neighborhood and learn from strangers what we don't know.


Third Coast International Audio Festival, or Third Coast, has served an ever-growing global community of storytellers and makers since 2000. An independent nonprofit arts organization based in Chicago, we center people and community first in our advocacy for the medium of audio as an art form. Through our work, we seek to push at the boundaries of the audio industry and support the creators who build our world in sound.
