PickPath is about enhancing real world experiences

Who is PickPath for?


Galleries, museums, performance makers, festivals, tourism operators, educators and placemakers - or perhaps just an enthusiastic parent with a penchant for making scavenger hunts. While PickPath was created for live performance contexts, its application is wide.

What can I do with PickPath?


You can make self-guided journeys for groups or individuals; location-specific experiences or remote ones; interactive, social experiences; or add audience participation to your event or performance. Your experience can be built with:

  • Endless non-linear "pick-a-path" avenues
  • Content pinned to specific locations, with maps or compasses to help you get there
  • Audio, video and images
  • Audience inputs and recall, and multi-choice functions
  • Conditional pathways based on time or location

How do I create a PickPath experience?


PickPath is a platform that anyone can use - without any specialist technical skills. If you have a clear idea of the experience you want to make, you can jump into the Creator Studio and start building straight away. Alternatively, the PickPath team offer services to help you conceptualise and build your experience, or even create the experience for you. Get in touch to discuss your project.
