* ELEVATE is the Hall's new artist in residency and community engagement project. It aims to amplify the creative voices, ideas and talents of under represented people in our community, working in partnership with Voice of BME Trafford. 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 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.
