FoRC's Mission and Mandates

The Friends of Roselawn Centre (FORC) is a non-for-profit and charitable status volunteer advisory board whose mission is to resurrect the Roselawn Centre, a civic centre in a magnificent historic mansion currently sustained by the municipality.

The FORC was formed in April 2013. Using the Roselawn Centre, the Friends of Roselawn Centre want to create a permanent, sustainable community arts centre that stimulates and helps co-ordinate the development of the visual, literary, performing and heritage arts within the local community and beyond.

Our mission: Creating a home for the arts and entertainment at Roselawn to ensure a vibrant cultural life for our community.

Our group of energetic community members have a passion for art and culture, and a love for the beloved Victorian Mansion.

The Friends of Roselawn Centre have established two mandates:

  1. To help facilitate the offerings of art & culture events in both the community at large and at the Roselawn Centre, itself;
  2. Through partnership with the City of Port Colborne, help restore and maintain the Roselawn Centre and the beautiful Victorian Mansion.
