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.

Sound does not work on video or audio clips
Stuck on first activity
No sound plays and won't let you advance without it. Was advised I needed latest system update which I have. Please fix!! We have assessments based on this app!
Not a bad idea but..
It was an overall shallow experience. Minimal choice in reactions (angry reaction, no reaction or the "right" reaction), and the apps response to the wrong reactions were nothing but empty guilt trips.
Your choice in reaction meant nothing as there was no rewards or consequences for your choices.
Having to wait 24 hours to be able to complete the next day of choices felt unnecessary and drained some interest from the app each time.
Your choice in character was also irrelevant as everyday you experienced the same events of being a victim of racism except it simply changed the racial slur being used. I feel making the characters have completely different experiences more related to the discrimination they actually face would have made the app both more interesting and credible. Making the characters experience actually different and relevant would also make the 24 hour wait before you can use the app again more meaningful.
However with all that aside, the differentiating formats of the experience was a nice touch and the videos were for the most part well done and well acted.
At the end of the day "Everyday Racism" aims to help prevent racism in quite a juvenile and shallow way and does not achieve this purpose whatsoever.
