From sheltered bus stops to eSafety

Start the conversation

I’m not a bus catcher unless there’s an emergency and my neighbourhood seems to be devoid of Canberra’s iconic ‘solid as a rock’ 1975 bus stop creations of Clem Cummings that serve as cold concrete lumps placed just a bit ‘skew wiff’ for visibility and cold concrete protection.

The Clem Cummings creations have been given a new lease on life and dare I say it status.

Yes, they all look quite impressive in the collection photographed by Trevor Dickinson and now smartly framed in a veritable bank of bus stops at the Canberra Museum and Gallery exhibition.

There’s an individuality about them, and a kind of neighbourhood decor on some and the usual graffiti incumbent on all fixed features of the urban landscape, but they look so good.

Pop in to CMAG and find your local and admire the artful designs of Trevor Dickinson in bringing the concrete lumps into this century.

The issue of eSecurity was the subject of Women in Media’s address to the National Press Club by eSafety Commissioner Juliet Inman Grant who provided her overview of this complex subject.

As ‘Australia’s approach to keeping its citizens safer online……. risks, challenges and opportunities’ it is an arena fraught with danger for young people, exploitation for the more mature and frustration when confronted with all that fake news.

And when will the NBN be completed?
