The Aspire Project Dance Camp!

We had the honor of hosting Dance Camp at Rosewood this week! There was about 17 participants that put all their hard work and energy towards their routine.  The theme of the camp was minions and as you can see the yellow shirts and thick black glasses. They performed there three jazz routines today for family and friends and did such an amazing job. Its great to see youth in the space doing something empowering.  Take a look at these pictures from the event!dance camp 1dance camp 2

National Night Out!

Thursday, August 6th, over 700 people gathered for National Night Out! It was an awesome celebration in the Rosewood community! Our neighbors enjoyed free BBQ, live music, dancers, a vibrant community market with over 50 vendors, and even a singing contest!   It was Rosewood’s largest event to date, and we hope it’s even bigger next year!

Special thanks to the Portland Police Bureau who came out and engaged with community members and even let kids sit on a police motorcycle! Also a special thanks to all the churches and people who helped put this together, we couldn’t of done it without you!

Looking for Market Vendors!

Market Vendors,
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our first Rosewood National Night Out Market on Thursday, August 6th from 5-8pm.  National Night Out is a week long celebration held in communities across the country as a way to build community and combat crime across the United States.
Last year we had a free community dinner and live music that drew around 300 community members.  This year we thought, “Why not raise the bar and add a market?”, so we’re doing just that! The market will be an outdoor market and will again feature live music and a free community dinner!
If you are interested in being a vendor sign-up here.  If you have any questions feel free to email me at tony@rosewoodinitive.org or call at 503-208-2562.  I look forward to seeing you at the market!
