The background image utilised in this presentation, painted by Heather Laughton, was sourced from the cover of the Northern Territory Government’s Report of the Northern Territory Board of Inquiry into the Protection of Aboriginal Children from Sexual Abuse 2007.

As described in the report, “The design represents the coming together of different people to help tackle the problem of child sexual abuse: mothers, children, grandmothers at a safe place, fathers and grandfathers at a safe place, and in the middle a resource centre with a mentor/counsellor/educator and family members and other support people. The resource centre represents a place where people can come together to work out their problems as a family or as a community, and also to learn how the mainstream law system and Aboriginal law are both strong ways of protecting children.”

Apart from being a beautiful image, Terry and Andrew believed the description fitted well with the intent of this project.
