Uproot logo in Black

Uproot arrived in 2020 as a non-profit, to harness the arts for social change and empowerment in marginalised communities. We are a Black-led company working across Film, TV and Theatre.

Our Vision.

We want to see Black people in the UK grow through life seeing the vastness of our stories represented across the arts.

Our mission.

- Develop innovative, impactful and representative work with Black creatives.

- Ensure the arts are more accessible to Black creatives and communities.

- Offer development, networking and work opportunities that empower Black creatives.

- Ensure that wellbeing is at the forefront of our creative practices.

“There are organisations that we come across at points in our lives, that have a profound impact on us in some way

Uproot is that organisation for me. Their ingenuity and dedication to the empowerment of black people is exactly what we need. We are truly blessed to have this progressive and unapologetic initiative in our industry.”
