It’s Your Right application released

Athena Media has been working on the It’s Your Right transmedia project for the Ombudsman for Children’s Office since February. The aim of the project has been to educate and inform children and young people about their rights largely through the voices and stories of children themselves. This is accomplished through a series of video and audio podcasts, compiled and brought together in an iPad app which also features additional information on a quiz.  The podcast channels are hosted at audioboom (formally known as audioboo) and vimeo. The iPad application can be downloaded via iTunes. The Irish Times ran a feature on the It’s Your Right campaign and app which you can read here.

One of the highlights of the project was the “Shield” song by Ellen and Carla which they had wrote prior to getting involved with It’s Your Right, throughout the project the song evolved and developed into a wonderful version accompanied by strings and a primary school choir.
