Tintype Photos with Left of Center Photography
Tintype is a wet plate collodion process which was invented in 1851. Initially it was used to create negative images on glass plates. In the mid 1850s the process was modified to create positive images on metal. Left of Center Photography will be on-site for a pop-up photo event at our April PEACE Pops.
SESSIONS MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE HERE: locphoto.com/popups.

Help welcome Callaloo Café to the Heights. They will be on-site offering up samples of their carribean inspired dishes and will be selling small plates for you to enjoy.
Singer Kate Porter will perform in our large center space from 8 - 9 pm.

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.
