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:Access the Anti-Racism Metaverse now!
The experience starts in a Grand Atrium courtyard with a brief welcome video by the project lead. Have a look around the atrium.
In each of the Metaverse environments, there is a rotating coloured prism which you can click on to return to the Grand Atrium.
Before you leave the experience, please return to the Grand Atrium and click on one of the tablets situated around the tree to complete a very brief questionnaire to tell us what you think of our Anti-Racism Metaverse. We would really love to receive your feedback.
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.
The curriculum materials provided within the metaverse cater to various educational levels, from schools to Further Education colleges and universities. While primarily designed for FE students studying at Level 2 or 3, the metaverse’s versatility ensures learners from all sectors can engage with its resources.
The Anti-Racism Metaverse contains four key areas where users can have engaging experiences, including hearing the lived experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic people, resources across a range of subject areas. It will also feature a World Timeline, the first of its kind, providing a timeline of history that is “unfiltered” adding breadth and depth to the traditional curriculum.
This metaverse, developed in conjunction with ethnic minority experts from schools, colleges, universities, and third parties, is the world’s first anti-racist virtual world, designed to provide an accessible and immersive learning experience for learners of all ages.
When you are creating your online world, you need to work with a partner that you can trust.
Metaverse Campus is a unique platform that has been developed and created by the team at Metaverse Hub. We have over 25 years’ experience in the development and delivery of virtual worlds in partnership with education, utility companies and governments around the world.
