InKAS 2nd Annual International Art Exhibition

InKAS would like to cordially invite art pieces of Korean adoptee artists to InKAS' 2nd annual Korean adoptee and Korean artists art exhibition in Seoul, South Korea. One of InKAS' prioritized projects are art related events where adoptees are able to professionally connect with Korean's mainstream social groups. We believe that a strong identity search for adoptees are found not through learning the Korean language and culture but also through meaningful interactions obtained in the Korean adoptee artists & Korean artists’ collaborative art exhibition 2015. 

Art is a medium of identity. Allow this opportunity to explore motherland Korea seen through the lens of art.

Our art exhibition hosted in November will be participated by 30 Korean adoptees artists and 30 Korean artists of similar level of artistic establishment. Last year we were able to successfully sell 30% of the 67 art works submitted and generously entire profit was returned to the artists 100%. 


Additionally, due to last years success, participants from the art exhibit 2014 will be hosting an additional adoptee art exhibition this September 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

This year’s exhibition gallery will be at the “Ara Art Center” —

LanguageBound Fall 15' Recruitment

Language Bound: Searching for Korean Adoptee English Instructors

 Language Bound is a social enterprise that teaches English to children from impoverished backgrounds. As much as knowing English is an asset measured for today’s success in Korea, affording English courses are often reserved for the upper class. By offering higher education of English to low-income children, Language Bound’s goal is to offset Korea’s educational social imbalance while creating more jobs dedicated to Korean adoptees.

What Language Bound is looking for?

 Unlike most English institutes many experienced English teachers are familiar with, empirical experience shows that our program differs greatly.

1.     Prepare to be patient with many of these children for it may be their first time receiving extra-curricular education apart from school.

2.     Acknowledge the difference of the working environment in comparison to other teaching experiences. Language Bound is an institutionalized combination of educational and humanitarian group effort to help expose children to the larger global world.

3.     We look for one’s maturity, dependability and commitment not only as employees to Language Bound, but also as teachers to young children in classroom settings.

4.     We are looking for someone with the heart and enthusiasm working with children. 

5.     Finally, you should be available from August to December 2015

What you will find with Language Bound?

No previous teaching experience is needed. Language Bound will train instructors to become competent teacher with our newly adopted teaching method.

If you choose so, we will offer 3 specific work benefits. Hired Language Bound instructors will receive

1) 600,000 KRW per month (16 teaching hours)

2) free Teacher’s Training course, especially on storytelling

3) priority acceptance in all service offered by InKAS

Further details can be shared via email at

SeolNal Cerebration - Second Event / Feb. 21st

Dear All InKAS Members,

Thank you everyone for showing lots of interest and support for our New Year Celebration on February 18th. You are always welcomed to our future events if unable to attend this time. All our events are designed to introduce a new angle of understanding Korean culture as well as an opportunity for adoptees to connect with the mainstream Korean community.

Unlike our previous years, InKAS will have two different Korean New Year celebrations (Seol-Nal) in the same week.

In collaboration with the “Korea Rotary Club” we prepared lunch and other traditional events at the “Korean House Restaurant” located close to Chungmuro Station. This restaurant is known for its Hanok estates, which adds to the classic Korean vibe of culture and traditional depth.

A true Seol-Nal holiday significance is found in the way family elders bless to younger generations. To introduce these values of blessing to the adoptees and adoptive families living in Korea throughhospitality, InKAS and the Rotary Club have prepared an excellent traditional meal.

*** You may attend both the Guesthouse celebration on the 18th and also attend the “Korea House” celebration on the 21st

Please email us by Monday 23rd (Morning) if you are interested on attending! And visit the Korea House website to see what programs they offer!

Time: 12:30PM-3PM

Date: February 21st, 2015

Location: Korea House - 서울특별시 중구 퇴계로36길 10

Subway: Chungmuro Station (Line 4) Exit #3


Guests: Adoptees & Adoptive Families & Friends (those with no experience in Korean Culture)

RSVP: 30 reservations ONLY (Need NOT to be an InKAS member)
