Two+Two Collaboration Event

February 16, 2018


Two+Two is a one day event bringing creative, technical and marketing students together. Thirty teams of five working to one brief. Each team will be made up of creative, technical and marketing students, just like they would be in the world outside of university. This is the way it should always be. One brief, one collaboration.

TwoandTwo seeks to help effect social change and this year’s challenge to the students is to tackle the issue of Loneliness, inspired by the work of the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness.  There are over 150 students from six Northern universities taking part and experts from over 25 agencies and brands acting as mentors.

Our aim and pledge is to help the winning brief become a reality by working with the agencies involved and concerned charities to turn the idea into a live campaign.

This collaborative event is taking place in the event space at The Federation in Manchester, a community of innovators built on ethical values.  

The event is run by Creative Resource with the massive help of the creative marketing community.  Friday 16th February 2018 will see our inauguaral TwoandTwo collaboration event, following several years of running employability events, Behance portfolio reviews and sponsorship of School of Thought.  


Students of under or post-graduate marketing, advertising, design, computer science or web development courses can request a place via twoandtwo@creativeresource.co.uk there are a small number of completely free tickets still available.  We have also saved a small number of tickets for recent graduates who haven’t yet managed to break into the industry, again email us to request a place.
