Event Details

Death doesn’t have to be dull. In fact, it can be a catalyst for transformation and change.

We all experience death at some point, yet it remains a taboo topic. With the events of the last year, the world is grieving more than ever before. So, isn’t it about time we gave grief a voice?

On a mission to inject relatability into the topic of death, ‘Good Mourning – A New Way to Think About Grief’ will candidly tackle the tumultuous topic of grief, and change the way you think about, feel and experience loss with honesty, humour and wholehearted conversation.

Join our panel of inspiring and original Australian changemakers as they share their personal stories of grief, and how they have used their experience with loss as a catalyst for positive change.

Learn why grief doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, how storytelling can help the bereaved heal, and discover the ways technology is changing the way we mourn in the modern age.

Hosts Sally Douglas and Imogen Carn both became members of 'the club' that nobody wants to join, when their mothers both died unexpectedly.

Their grief sparked a mission to ‘do death differently’, by sharing real and relatable perspectives on this universal subject through their popular grief-focused podcast, Good Mourning.

Whether you have experienced the death of a loved one, or are somebody's support person, or just want to prepare yourself for when grief strikes, this conversation will educate and inspire you. Because grief doesn’t always mean the end. Sometimes, it can be the beginning.

Expect laughter, tears, hope and connection.
