We are an incubator for art and technology that inspirits human connection in imaginative ways. We build creative solutions to some of the world’s seemingly insurmountable challenges – from countering violent extremism to ending modern day slavery to dismantling dangerous militant groups to combating hate speech. We partner with NGOs, foundations, governments, UN agencies and the private sector to test, develop, implement and diffuse scalable models. We make virtual reality films to psychosocial interventions to mobile cinema.
Our team of artists, social scientists, policy experts and peacebuilders view the world through the lens of how narratives influence human behavior. Stories are potent, and embedded in scalable interventions, can accomplish incredible things. Our name, Novo, means to make new. We believe that our world’s challenges deserve new approaches to solve them, and that human flourishing is possible.
We reach beyond.
