Wayfinding is a word unfamiliar to many people. As a Museum Curator and Director, I was involved in creating more appropriate wayfinding paths for visitors. Creating easier methods of informing and instructing visitors on the move (wayfinding) is an indispensable part of running a museum or any public space that receives lots of visitors for purposes of education, tourism, or even shopping.
When I read the article, at Smithsonian.com, about “guerrilla wayfinding,” I was intrigued. Matt Tomsulo, a North Carolina resident in the United States, invented a way for citizens of his city to walk more (wayfind). He is not alone in wanting small cultural changes to take place more rapidly than at a snail’s pace.
Apparently, “guerrilla wayfinding,” is happening all over the country; and the activity goes by many names besides wayfinding, as you will see. You may need to copy (Control C) and paste (Control V) the link into your browser.
