Two Minutes

20×2 is an ongoing project that exists to showcase the creativity that lurks in each of us. Writers, musicians, filmmakers, web geeks and other bon vivants are asked to take two minutes each to answer the question of the day. The results can be as varied as the emotions and reactions they evoke.

Launched in 2001 during SXSW Interactive, 20×2 has grown to an ever-expanding pantheon of participants. Founded in Austin by Kevin Newsum, Chicago’s own Andrew Huff produced the first permanent satellite 20×2 Chicago show in 2013, with new events now happening twice annually.

Visit 20×2 Chicago here for the latest news on the next show, to connect with us on getting involved, or to pose a question of your own. And come see 20×2 live! It’s the best way to enjoy two hours of dynamic originality you’ll never forget.

What happens when you take 20 handpicked creatives and luminaries, give them each two minutes before a live audience and the same (fuzzy) question to unravel? That’s the premise behind 20×2 Chicago. The results can be as varied as the emotions and reactions they evoke. This edition’s question is “What did we miss?” You’ll laugh, you may cry, and it wouldn’t surprise us if you came away inspired.
