Creative Dundee

Stories of Community Action

7th June, 2:00pm at ScrapAntics Community Space

Social Action Inquiry Scotland showcase a series of inspiring stories of individuals improving their communities.

Join Social Action Inquiry Scotland for a special exhibit of films and talks featuring five compelling stories that highlight the diverse range of community initiatives happening across Scotland. These stories not only celebrate the dedication of these individuals but also delve into the factors that support and hinder their efforts, resonating with many in Dundee and reflecting common experiences and challenges within our own communities.

Social Action Inquiry Scotland, active from August 2021 to December 2023, has gathered valuable insights through a collaborative storytelling research model that they are excited to share and use to engage in meaningful conversations about community action.
