About

Do you dream of a Toronto you can afford? Wanna do what you love and attract world-class partners? Wanna travel the world and make a difference in people’s lives? You can.

eatingthegame is the visionary multimedia collaboration between the hottest young interdisciplinary company in Vancouver, Hong Kong Exile, and Toronto’s own Top 30-Under-30 urban planner, Conor Wylie: a motivational keynote speech that has rocked the West Coast, and is finally coming home to The Six. It’s time to unleash your potential. Global advancements in foreign property investment, cultural exchange, and policy-making are finally bridging the gap between Canada and China. With a Western sense of humour and a distinctly Eastern sense of business, Conor Wylie will show you a festival, a city, and a world, where anything is possible.

ETG premiered in 2015 at the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival in Vancouver, BC, and is coming home to SummerWorks. Don’t miss this limited Toronto engagement before it sets sail for Hong Kong and China.

Curator's Note

"eatingthegame confronts issues that are globally relevant, with an energy that will spark a response from even the apathetic majority. Hong Kong Exile and Conor Wylie are powerful provocateurs, with a striking motivational keynote speech that gets to the heart of our city, our festival, our art, and our unlimited potential. They come very highly recommended from our national and international partners." - Tara Beagan
