We're bringing back our Art of Community Weekend!

Art of Community is a long weekend full of creative events that showcase our creative community!

We are excited to announce the return of our annual Art of Community Weekend! Running from Thursday, Jan. 26th through Sunday, Jan. 29th, we will be celebrating the creative and diverse community that has supported us throughout the years. Events include the Coventry Living Room Project desing session, the Community of ARTists exhibition, our quarterly PEACE Pops and ARTFUL Open Studios, community art making workshops, live music by Half Craic’d, our first P.E.A.C.E. Celebration & Awards Night where attendees are encouraged to bring their most creative appetizers to share and wear their favorite creative outfit, the launch of Sam Silverman’s Soundworlds book, a celebratory Dance Party, and an Indoor Chalk Festival. 

The weekend’s activities include both free and paid events which are open to all ages and help to support Coventry PEACE and our member non-profit organizations. Proceeds will help us to continue to be able to host free community events like our quarterly PEACE Pops and annual Lantern Festival. Your generosity also helps us to support or non-profit members in a variety of ways and will help establish new or expanded programming in the future.

Our January PEACE Pops is being held in conjunction with our Art of Community Weekend!

Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Campus – the heART of collaboration.

Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Campus in Cleveland Heights is a unique arts, education, recreation and community service hub that is home to the Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Park & Playground and a diverse array of nonprofit organizations: Lake Erie Ink, FutureHeights, Reaching Heights, ARTFUL, Cleveland Heights – University Heights Teachers’ Union, Building Bridges Arts Collaborative, Art Acts Studio, Singers’ Club of Cleveland and Grace Communion Cleveland. These groups are housed in the former Coventry School building, which was part of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District. Since 2018, the building and six-acre property have been owned by Heights Libraries, whose Coventry branch is also part of the campus.

Coventry PEACE, Inc. provides a sustainable, supportive and collaborative facility for organizations that offer artistic and educational opportunities and community services for residents of the Heights and Greater Cleveland.

What is Coventry PEACE Campus?

When the school district sought to divest itself from the former Coventry Elementary School building in 2017, leaving its future uncertain, the leaders of all the tenant organizations and a broad base of community supporters came together in a grassroots movement to propose ways to preserve and grow the thriving culture and service ecosystem that had organically taken root there. From this effort, the Coventry PEACE Campus came into being. Coventry P.E.A.C.E., Inc. is the non-profit overseeing the maintenance, sustainability, renovation and development of the Coventry PEACE Building, which houses several local nonprofits. It is our goal to provide an accessible, sustainable, more efficient, and affordable home for these nonprofits, and to attract new organizations to the building.
