Owned and run by the local community, open to everyone

Stretford Public Hall was built for the local community by John Rylands in 1878. Since then it has had over 100 years of community use.

In 2015, the Friends of Stretford Public Hall took over the running of the Hall. Our aim is to restore the Hall into a fantastic multi-purpose community venue.

    New project at the Hall: ELEVATE

      This week we are launching a new project at the Hall called ELEVATE, which is an artist residency and community engagement project that aims to amplify the creative voices, ideas and talents of underrepresented people in our community and working in partnership with Voice of BME Trafford. Local artist, Venessa Scott, will move into our artist studios this week where she will start planning and making new art works. Venessa said, “ I’m so excited to do an artist residency, I’ve never done one before and it’s such a great opportunity to take time to create new things and develop my artistic practice, something artists don’t often get the time to do ”. Venessa will also be running creative workshops for local Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community groups, who will make their own artworks. These will be featured in a public exhibition at the Hall alongside the new artworks produced by Venessa. ELEVATE is a direct response to the Black Lives Matter movement, we identified that we must do more to embed diversity in our creative offer and in an authentic and responsive way by supporting people from diverse backgrounds to influence artistic decision-making and use creativity as a platform for change. Take a look at Venessa’s website: www.venessascott.co.uk ELEVATE is funded by Arts Council England Twitter: @ELEVATE_artsmcr Instagram:  @elevate_artsmcr For more information, please get in touch with Jessica, Project Manager on [email protected]  Photo courtesy of Venessa Scott
