Everyday Racism

Everyday Racism


Challenge the way you think about racism and look at life through someone else’s eyes. Take the EverydayRacism challenge and experience what life can be like for ethnic and cultural minorities in Australia who face subtle forms of racism every day.

EverydayRacism is an immersive game played out over seven days, giving you an insight into the racial issues many face in Australia. Choose from one of three characters: a Muslim woman, an indigenous man or an Indian student, and for the next seven days you’ll receive simulated texts, tweets, images and videos as though you were them.

How will you respond? How will it make you feel? Can you handle it?

The game also gives you the opportunity to play as yourself, where you’ll witness incidents of racism and their effect on people around you.

The game has been produced by All Together Now in association with the University of Western Sydney, The University of Melbourne and Deakin University.

All Together now is Australia’s only national charity that has a sole focus of addressing racism.

Gets the point across, but can be odd App started working recently (after having similar issues to other users) and it's a good concept. Some of the comments and options to reply are odd (either over-the-top or not what I would do), but the idea of sitting in someone else's shoes is not easy, so I appreciate the underlying message.

Not based in reality This is garbage.

Won't load Like so many other reviewers, I installed this and then it never loaded for me to use it. Who knows if it's any good? Sloppy coding and poor testing is enough to say it's not worth bothering with.
