More information will be shared about our 2023 art experience in the coming months.
This year at the Racialized Maternal Health Conference 2022 we will be sharing the work of the artist/photographer Solana Cain. Solana Cain has captured Black Maternal Health exquisitely in this exhibit titled Honouring Black Motherhood. Enjoy this exhibit while you connect and engage with other attendees! We are pleased to share that the evening event portion of last year’s conference is taking place on February 3, 2023 at The Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto. If you are a 2022 RMHC ticket holder, your ticket to this special event is free. A special code has been sent to all conference ticket holders to reserve your ticket. Limited tickets are also available for purchase.
Solana Cain is a photojournalist, emerging curator, and photographic professional. Solana was selected as one of the inaugural artists in residence at Nia Centre for the Arts in Toronto. She is a graduate of the School of Journalism at Toronto Metropolitan University, and the photojournalism program at Loyalist College. Solana is an accomplished photo editor, currently working at The Globe and Mail newspaper in Toronto.
“Honouring Black Motherhood” is a continuation of Solana’s documentary work aimed at celebrating and empowering Black Mothers. For this photo series, Solana worked collaboratively with mothers documenting them while they shared one of their favourite activities to do with their infant. Solana strives to record the intimacy and joy along with strength and resiliency that Black mothers possess. These photos were featured in Maclean’s magazine (2021) and in Broadview Magazine (2020). This is the second time Solana is exhibiting photography at the Racialized Maternal Health Conference.
