What If... Adoptees Reflect on Race and Culture

Wednesday September 29, 7:30-9:30 pm 2004

St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front Street East 
(2 blocks east of Union Station)

Admission is free


What If? is a question all adoptees ask themselves. No two adoption stories
are alike, but adoption naturally leads to questions of birthright, identity
and the unknown. Gratitude for the gift of a family is often mixed with a
sense of family and heritage lost. Increasingly adoption is crossing racial
and cultural lines and brings up further questions of racism, cultural
identity and economic disparity.

In this free public forum, adult adoptees reflect on their experience of
cross-racial and cross-cultural adoptions and its implications.

With

Hilary Hahn: Adopted in 1976 from Korea at two years of age into a German
Canadian family. She is currently a teacher in Toronto.

Dana Inkster: Adoptee and award winning filmmaker of "The Art of
Autobiography".

Jackie Dale: Transitional Support Worker with Native Child and Family
Services.

Heather McDonald: Vietnamese orphan, raised in Cape Breton.

Moderator: David Schatzky: Psychotherapist
