The Indigenously themed buses.

By johnboy 17 July 2008 25

A little late on this one, but TAMS have kindly sent in the photos.

Two ACTION Buses are now sporting lovely indigenous themes.

Here’s a statement for those wanting to know more detail:

    Minister John Hargreaves officially launched two ACTION buses featuring
    locally designed Indigenous artwork.

    Territory and Municipal Services worked closely with the ACT Aboriginal
    and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Centre to develop artwork.

    The project was been coordinated by Matilda House, along with 5 other
    adults, who engaged 8 children and young people to participate in the
    project and development of local Indigenous artwork.

    The project provided the local community with an opportunity to come
    together, to share the history and development of local Indigenous art
    with the young people and children involved.

    The buses have already been on show during the NAIDOC week celebrations
    and provide a good opportunity to showcase local Indigenous artwork to
    the Canberra community and visitors.

    The artwork was artwork was painted onto a number of canvases, then
    pulled together by Rob Little Digital Images in consultation with
    Matilda House and screened onto vinyl wraps that were placed onto two
    ACTION buses.

Just how many aboriginals are there in Canberra?

I’ve been living in Canberra fulltime for just under 2 years, i have never seen an aboriginal except at political ceremonies.

If the ACT Govt is so concerned about minorites, then when will we be seeing the “I voted for a dragway” and “No power station at Hume” buses?

I don’t know much about public transport/art policy, but I know what I like.

ooh, that would be reverse apartheid, wouldn’t it??

No, just apartheid, you twit. Do you ‘do a 360’ when you change your mind about something as well?

Isnt that a 180′?

when I make a comment in jest, I don’t think that most people would miss something so glaringly obvious…
