The workshops and sessions at the IKAA Gatherings provide a time for participants to explore specific topics related to adoption, the adoptee experience, or the themes of the Gathering. Past sessions and topics have included birth family search, birth family reunion experiences, building relationships with birth family members post-reunion, Korea from a historical perspective, developments in domestic Korean adoption, working and living in Korea, Korean adoptees’ relationships with adoptive family, parenthood, exploring identity through art, LGBTQ discussion, DNA testing, and much more.

The IKAA G19 will feature a day of diverse workshop sessions, and we are currently going through the amazing proposals! Stay tuned!
