The IKAA Gathering 2013 will take place July 29 – August 4, 2013 in Seoul, Korea and promises to promote networking both amongst adult Korean adoptees from countries all over the world, and between adult Korean adoptees and Korean society. This is the largest conference of its kind, occurring only once every three years, with attendees from all across the United States, Europe, and Asia, and an overall expected attendance of at least 700 participants!

The workshops & sessions provide a time for participants to explore more specific topics related to adoption and the adoptee experience. Past workshops and session’s topics have included: birth family search, negotiating relationships with birth family members post-reunion, Korea from a historical perspective, developments in domestic Korean adoption, working and living in Korea, Korean adoptees and parenthood,exploring identity through art, and much more.  Sun Mee has been invtied to present her one-woman show as a special featured event for this year’s Gathering.


The theme of this year’s Gathering is The Power of Networking: Crossing Borders and Bridging Cultures so we are spending more time in planning activities that allow participants to explore Seoul and the many things Korea has to offer. Because of this, we have a limited number of spaces for workshops. At the bottom of the application, there is a place to indicate if you are OK with discussing collaboration with other workshops that may have similar themes. We want to create the fullest program possible while also being inclusive to the many adoptees who have expertise and experience to share.
