Young people use augmented reality to explore issues of inclusion in football

A group of young people from across Belfast took part in a creative programme using augmented reality to respond to issues around racism, sectarianism and sexism in the world of football.

Delivered at the National Football Stadium and in partnership with the IFA's Connect Programme, the workshops gave young participants an opportunity to hear firsthand about experiences of issues faced by players. 

Current and former players, and those associated with football, gave a frank and honest account of their experiences to help the group understand some of the prevalent issues in the sport. 

Inspired by that input, the group then learned how to use digital design and augmented reality technology to create their own bespoke football trading cards that come to life when scanned using the Zappar AR app. 

Each of the participants voiced their opinions around a topic important to them, such as racism and inclusion, and created their own unique hidden message. 

You can view each of the participant's outputs in the publication below. In order to trigger the hidden video content download the Zappar app for Apple or Android
