Introducing ‘walking scores’

Over the last few years, several artists and academics have started to use the term ‘walking score’ to describe a set list of tasks, facilitating an exploration, in whatever setting. A walking score is, in essence, a curated dérive, as we know it over here, with the difference that it can be started at any time. And, by implication, each individual task is not bound by a certain start- and end-time.

As of today, we are introducing walking scores into Dérive app.

At the moment, walking scores are connected to a group, and only group admins and editors can create scores. All members of the group can ‘play’ a walking score.
A score is a set collection of tasks, with each task being ‘set’ for a certain amount of time. When all tasks have been walked through, or played, the walking score ends.

As with regular dérives, players can leave notes and images.
