SYMPOSIUM:

International and Transcultural Adoption: Navigating Home to Homeland

January 22 and 23, 2016

 “What do you do when you don’t know your history?  You make it up, of course,” says Katie Hae Leo, who was born in South Korea and raised in Indiana.

The Phoenix-based actor’s one-woman show will open a two-day creative exploration about international and transcultural adoption taking place at the University of Regina on Friday, January 22nd and Saturday the 23rd.  Saturday afternoon Leo and other adult adoptees will share their thoughts on what “home” means to people growing up in cultures different from their birth country or culture of origin. Adoptive parents will explore the topic through readings from a play-in-progress, an art exhibition and poster presentations. The event will close with an evening of First Nation storytelling and singing with Violet Naytowhow and Joseph Naytowhow. 

All events are free and take place at the Shubox Theatre at the University of Regina.
