WTF – 20×2 Chicago

20×2 Chicago

October 20, doors 6:00pm

Two Minutes

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, the popular event staged since 2001 at SXSW Interactive — and live twice a year in Chicago since 2013!

Join us at 6:30pm on Friday, Oct. 20 at the Hideout as 20 speakers wrestle with the question “How does it work?” You’ll laugh, you may cry, and it wouldn’t surprise us if you came away inspired.

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 shows 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.
