NORN
Designing meaningful conversations





A B O U T
 
Norn is an interpersonal way to explore the meaning of life through offline conversations. 
It was founded by Travis Hollingsworth as an international research project at Stanford University in California to understand what makes people connect at a deeper level. 

From facilitating member gatherings for global citizens in co-living houses in Berlin, London, San Francisco and Barcelona, Norn developed into weekly conversations in external spaces (cafés, bars and restaurants) as a way to explore and connect to a new city/place.

Norn has collaborated with cultural organisations and creative brands to design deep conversations including Existentialism  with Somerset House,  The Future with Tech Open Air, Terroir with Tiger Bar, "Conversation in a polarised age" with 52 Insights.

Norn is currently active in Berlin, London, San Francisco, and has a waitlist in European and US cities.
