Events 2006

Ongoing research on transnational adoption and sharing issues for discussion through producing publictions, the new focus being on Brisbane and Australian families. This year also co-organising an adult adoptee information table at the annual International Day Festival for adoptive families at the Logan Entertainment Centre. A QLD social will coincide. Other activities include doing a Q and A session for prospective adoptive parents for the Intercountry Adoptive Families of Queensland (IAFQ), drawing attention to the adopted Vietnamese history in Australia via a film review of Dai Le’s film Operation Babylift for an anthropology journal. Also a joint adult adoptee – general members meet up at the inaugural Asian Australian Brisbane membership social. Bigger projects in the future – putting in place a short film festival on Asian cinema.
