Welsh Government - Anti-Racism Metaverse

In partnership with mXreality, and working with subject specialist teams from Cardiff and Vale College and other leading institutions, we have developed a vast, accessible and immersive 3D metaverse environment consisting of four different themed areas. We look forward to sharing our experiences, stories and histories with you. You are invited to engage in an immersive learning experience, one that will add light to your understanding of the world. As you travel through this world, we ask that you engage with the resources and reflect on their significance. This is an opportunity for you to learn about the cultures and traditions that form part of our shared identity.

If this is your first time here, we recommend you read through the information below to find out more about what to expect and how to navigate and interact in the Anti-Racism Metaverse. However, if you are already familiar with this, then please:

Immersive Studies

4 2 Immersive Studies

The Immersive Studies Metaverse consists of a main lower level area and three upper level areas. The main area has various items of geometrical interest because of their shapes and patterns, showing the relationship between maths, science and nature. You can find out more about these items by clicking on them. There is also a QR Code on the display panel near some items which you can scan with your mobile phone camera to view an augmented reality (AR) or 3D version of the item on your device.

The upper level consists of:

  • a Maths Room – allowing the visitor to explore the importance and history of numbers,
    mathematical and geometrical shapes
  • a Hair and Beauty Room – allowing the visitor to familiarise themselves with the
    history and roots of hair and beauty
  • an Inventions Room – informing the visitor on some significant inventions and early
    contributions to modern day life

World Timeline

4 3 World Timeline

The World Timeline Metaverse consists of a main central area and four geographical regions, each accessible via a tunnel from the central area. Each tunnel displays information providing a background, identity and visualisation of a representative individual from that region. Each of the four regions (detailed below), consists of four time periods allowing the visitor to experience representative architecture, imagery and information related to ancient, medieval, early modern, and modern times.

The four regions available in this Metaverse are: Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Middle East and Northern Europe.

As you move around the world timeline, in the central area and each of the regions, there are interactive items that you can click on that link to videoclips to provide useful additional information. There are also QR Codes in some of the regions which you can scan with your mobile phone camera to view an augmented reality (AR) or 3D version of the item on your device.

Aim / Mission

In 2022 the Welsh Government announced that it was committed to ensuring Wales will be an anti-racist country by 2030 – the first country to make this commitment. A key part of its Anti-Racist Wales Action plan has been to develop an anti-racist curriculum.

The curriculum is in the form of a metaverse – the first anti-racist virtual world. This innovative development, led by Cardiff and Vale College on behalf of the Welsh Government, provides an accessible and immersive learning experience developed and produced in collaboration with ethnic minority experts from schools, colleges, universities and third parties.

As the first nation to invest in an anti-racist virtual curriculum, the project has seen a growing base of international collaborators and education experts. Accessible through the website www.antiracism.wales this resource extends its impact beyond Wales.

With an expanding network of international collaborators and education experts, it holds global relevance and offers tremendous possibilities for learners worldwide.

The metaverse – www.antiracism.wales – has been developed in partnership with MX Reality using the Metaverse Hub platform.
