IAFQ organises various events and activities throughout the year, from major annual events like our International Adoption Day and Mapleton Retreat, to more frequent meet ups like Chat & Play days and the MOVEnSHAKE program.
International Adoption Day
International Adoption Day is an annual cultural event in Brisbane, where the adoption community celebrates adoption and the difference it has made to our lives. International Adoption Day 2019 will be held on Sunday 28 July at the Samford Community Hall.
Mapleton Retreat is an annual camp, held for five days in January, to give adoptive families the chance to make and renew friendships over an extended period in a safe environment. The retreat is held at the Queensland Conference and Camping Centre about 90 minutes north of Brisbane.
Chat & Play
Chat & Play is a fun and informal way to seek friendship and support for adoptive parents and their little ones. Meet-ups are usually held monthly on a Monday morning, alternating around some of the great parks that we have in South East Queensland.
MOVE ‘n’ SHAKE
Various events and workshops to provide opportunities for young people impacted by adoption and foster care to be empowered and encouraged through safe and authentic connections.
