Artist Support


HELPING Artists at PIVOTAL POINTS In their careers

Silent Uproar as a small charity is dedicated to supporting artists at crucial stages in their careers (particularly writers based in Yorkshire).

We believe that in order for our audiences to continue receiving top quality nights out, we need to further support artists from all walks of life, particularly those at crucial points in their development. Currently there are very few opportunities to support and develop emerging artists in the North of England, especially in East Yorkshire.


Without artist development opportunities we risk missing out on great art that is drawn from and reflects a much truer representation of our whole society. Providing these opportunities allows the arts to reach the countless audience members looking for work that better represents them.

We have witnessed first-hand how a little support can go a long way for artists who are at a pivotal point in their careers, being able to focus on your writing rather than pulling pints prevents an artist’s career stalling before it has begun. Some of the artists we have supported at just the right time have gone onto work for major BBC television shows, the National Theatre, to even international companies such as Netflix.

Please check out the opportunities below

Writer Support

We champion and support writers in numerous ways from seed funding (to help get an idea off the ground) to full commissions (for touring shows).


If you are a writer and you an idea you think we'd love, please click below to read about how to get in contact.

Out loud

Out Loud is a new scratch night for writers in Hull to see and hear their scripts performed by professional actors in front of a friendly audience.


These nights are in partnership with Middle Child Theatre and have been kindly funded by Hull playwright Richard Bean.
