About us


One to One Development Trust is an award-winning arts organisation that uses digital media to work with communities to produce innovative and immersive projects using everything from filming-making through to Virtual Reality


One to One has a strong track record of instigating, facilitating, and delivering successful projects including the development of films, websites, apps and interactive media. Since 2014 we have won or been shortlisted for over 20 international awards through our in-house studio Dreaming Methods.

Our funders, clients and partners range from National cultural organisations, Local Authorities, Voluntary Sector through to International NGOs. Organisations often repeat working with us on different projects over many years and say that is a testimony to our creative approach, ongoing support, and service.

In an era where technology changes so rapidly, feedback says that working with One to One helps our partners/clients embrace digital technologies for realistic costs, with ensured ongoing support and commitment. As a registered charity any profits we make are invested back into our delivery of local community arts projects.


"One to One are such lovely genuine bunch of people, it's been a real pleasure working with them and seeing their exciting projects bloom."
Charlotte Blacker – Animator
