NBOstorylab supports the next generation of storytellers through integrated media research and development. Our team has years of experience building networks, deploying emerging technologies in difficult contexts, and producing stories with impact through partnerships with the world's best media. We work urgently, learn locally, and share boldly.
NBOStorylab's first project was a VR hackathon in 2017 in collaboration with Electric South supported by the Bertha Foundation and the British Council. We equipped nine fellows with the gear and skills to produce VR films and began a conversation about how the technology can grow in East Africa. Their films will be shown at our next initiative the 360 Afrika Forum, a project to democratize access to emerging technology by building bridges between creatives, organizations and industry.
