Getting ActionBound

Developed in Berlin, ActionBound is an app based treasure hunt / activity tool which allows participants to take part in “missions”, “quizzes” and other activities. Participants will be asked to take pictures, record videos, answer questions & even write a poem all around the theme of “open”. Our ‘Bounds’ have been masterfully created by Simon Thomson (@digisim) and you can find out more about how to getting involved.
