Sorry Business

The 2024 conference theme is Sorry Business.
Can the Coroner's Court investigate, interrogate and heal? 

Sorry Business is an Australian colloquial term referring to a period of mourning for Aboriginal people after someone has passed away. The uniquely Territorian phrase captures a lot of what the Coroner’s Court does. This conference will explore themes, ideas and studies of the Coroner’s Court that align with Sorry Business.

Healing Together - Tjungu Palyantjaku

The conference logo is a representation of the conference theme, Sorry Business. 

The painting represents Indigenous and non-Indigenous gathering together on country, in this case the circle shows the gathering. The U shaped reflects Indigenous and non Indigenous coming together reflected by the colours. Healing together like a healing circle. As everyone gathers, they heal and talk. Many things are discussed and in that process everyone can move forward to better times, individually and collectively.
