Our History

Driftscape was created to make local culture easier to discover. Driftscape Cofounder and CEO Chloe Doesburg tells us a bit about how Driftscape got started.

“ I love it when you can connect a story with a place you know. It deepens your appreciation of both the story and the place. With Driftscape we’d like to make it easier to find and appreciate these connections.

 

The original inspiration for Driftscape came from an audio story-telling project that predated smartphones, called murmur. Murmur connected people with stories about the places they visited. I started looking for other similar projects and found so many groups and organizations that were telling really fantastic in-depth stories about the places they knew best, from their own unique perspectives. These were the kind of projects that people were thrilled to discover, but they were hard to find. These were the kinds of things that constantly made people say “How did I not know about this?” It truly was like uncovering hidden gems in your  backyard. 

 

With mobile app technology, I knew we could create a way to seamlessly connect people with these stories, and also create a way to help organizations share their stories.  I also knew I would need a lot of help to make it happen.

 

In 2017 I met Dan Pronovost, an experienced mobile developer who had the skills and the passion to make Driftscape a reality.

 

Later that year, we launched Driftscape, and it has since grown into an amazing discovery tool for explorers, and a powerful technical tool for cultural organizations, municipalities, festivals, and more.”  

Today, Driftscape partners with regional organizations, municipalities, and unique cultural organizations to tell their stories, highlight their hidden gems and encourage exploration.
