WHAT: 20×2 Chicago is a live event where 20 people from all different walks of creative life — writers, musicians, filmmakers, web geeks and other bon vivants — are asked the same question and given two minutes each to answer in whichever way they choose.

SO WHAT: The results may take any form, from spoken word to music to film, and can be as varied as the emotions and reactions they evoke. This edition’s question is “What the fuck?” (Or WTF? if you prefer.) The show is hosted by Andrew Huff, former editor and publisher of Gapers Block, and the speakers for this edition are, in alphabetical order:

• Safia Abdalla, developer and writer
• James Allenspach, programmer
• Kim Bellware, Huffington Post reporter
• Keidra Chaney, writer and musician
• Jessi DeBartolomeo, CHIRP DJ and volunteer coordinator
