Returning to SXSW for our 18th Year!

Eighteen long years ago, the team behind 20x2 set out to celebrate the creativity lurking in each of us by mining it—two minutes at a time—from household names and fresh faces alike.

As one of the longest continuously running events at SXSW Interactive, we are excited to once again bring this always-entertaining evening of eclectic vignettes.

 

What Are The Odds?

March 09, 2018

Our next show happens on the first Friday of SXSW Interactive in the heart of our home town, Austin Texas. Not even we know what to expect when we unleash the question on our twenty willing participants. We do know that it's always good for a few laughs, some deep thoughts, and many unforgettable performances.

What is This About?

Since our first show at SXSW in 2001, 20x2 has grown to include an ever-expanding list of participants. Our team works with featured artists to conjure a framework for creative exploration. With each show, the question and participants change, but their ability to surprise and amaze us never does.

Two minutes may fly by or stay with you forever, and it's that gift of perspective that 20x2 speakers capture so uniquely. If you've never seen a 20x2 show, we invite you to catch our next one. And if you're interested in bringing 20x2 to your city, drop us a line.
