Under the Surface

Seeds of the Seven Year Harvest
by Kim Cain
Through her painting, Cain pays homage to the arduous agricultural labour through which African Nova Scotian communities have survived despite obstacles set against them. Today’s generations of African Nova Scotians are the harvest of seeds planted long ago by tenacious and hard working ancestors.

In Full View
by Tina Roberts-Jeffers
In Full View is a photo exhibit that explores the unpaid labour of women, and more specifically Black women, in and around the home. The stills and self portraits point to the work needed to sustain households.
Labour that is often invisible is presented here in large, oversized photos that ask viewers to think about the physical and emotional weight of people and things on women.
In Full View wonders aloud who and what can be set aside until tomorrow, when the struggle demands so much of us today.

Face Control
by Katie Toth
What makes a refugee?
Canada is held up as a bastion of multiculturalism for many Romani people in Europe, who say that they are subject to a kind of “face control” that prevents them from finding employment and being treated as full citizens in their current nations. National and international laws try to draw borders between refugees fleeing persecution and immigrants seeking better financial futures. But for people who are prevented from participating fully in civil society because of discrimination or who are denied a chance to find meaning through their work, those lines aren’t so easy to draw. Material concerns are also political ones.

Under the Surface is presented by the Nova Scotia Nurses’ Union
