Nova is a unique platform that truly supports international emerging artists

 

 

OUR MISSION AND VISION

Our mission is to create the highest quality work possible, whether it is in the areas of documentary, film or the training of performers and artists. We aim to nurture both local and international communities by presenting challenging, relevant and inspiring art.

WE EMPHASIZE

Diversity by recognizing that culture and art are deeply intertwined, and our work reflects not only our own tastes but as well our consideration of art in the global community and our efforts to bring communities together and dissolving dividing lines and ideologies.

ENSEMBLE

By working with a core group of like-minded individuals, as well as nurturing both ourselves and emerging professional artists by creating opportunities for high-quality training.

OUTREACH

By continuously working to find ways to benefit groups, organisations and sometimes individuals in need outside of the immediate artistic communities, as well as always working diligently to keep our training at the most inclusive rates possible.

CHALLENGING IDEAS

B​​​​​​y presenting and creating works that deal with unique, provocative and complex subjects related to social, personal and political issues.

ABOUT OUR NAME

Nova is a word that comes from astronomy. It is defined as a star that flares up to several times its original brightness for sometime before returning to its original state. We find this a fitting recognition of both the transient and ephemeral nature of all things, but as well as a celebration of their potential as they grow to fruition and maturity.
