A key aspect of the Nova project is to use the unique power
of photography to effect social and environmental change.
We aim to do this is two ways. Firstly by donating 10%
of all print sales to good causes. And secondly, by working
with charities and photographers on photographic projects
that helps raise the profile of the charity's work.
We have chosen a range of charities that reflect this philosophy.
Specifically charities that empower people to transform
their own lives, community or environment.
Listed below are the charities we currently hope to support,
with a short description of their work and a link to their
website. Please note that the charities we support may change
from time to time, however the charities listed at the time
of any purhase will be the ones that benefit from that purchase.
Enjoy art and make a difference.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work,
education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy
£10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime
costs £1 billion every year. We address this by giving practical
and financial support to the young people who need it most.
We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling
young people to move into work, education or training.
