The Project

Love us? Hate us? Can't be bothered to take our concerns seriously? What if it was a game? Hatecopy returns to her old stomping grounds of Scarborough and puts allies to the test, introducing her very own “Feminist Game Show”—a large-scale, interactive production that exclusively features questions about prominent feminist figures, gender, pop culture and more! “The Big Feminist Game Show” is loaded with relevant and inspirational knowledge, not to mention a spinning wheel of winnings, placing the focus on women who have often been left uncredited and overshadowed in the media. Hatecopy sets to change the game, one woman at a time…. Are you ready to take the test?

The Artist

Hatecopy is a Toronto-based pop artist whose focus is the dialogue between South Asian diaspora on feminism and intersectionality, race, gender and classical themes of romance and drama. Her work has been featured globally with exhibitions in London and New York, and now comes back to her hometown for the night of Nuit Blanche.
