About us

Take One Action brings communities together to harness the transformative potential of film and storytelling for collective change

  • We bridge the space between film and social action to build power, imagination and active hope in Scotland and beyond
  • We centre stories, ideas and voices from people affected by oppressive systems and who are growing new worlds
  • We collaborate to create playful and radical encounters with film and art to inspire people to take action for a better future
  • We work to remove barriers to access and engagement across all our activities
  • We follow fair work principles, within our own organisation and with collaborators and partners, and prioritise rest, care and wellbeing
