Coventry PEACE (People Enhancing a Community’s Environment) Campus Community Weekend

When: Thu., July 27 2017

Claiming the building needs $1 million in repairs, city officials in Cleveland Heights announced plans earlier this year to pursue a sale of the old Coventry school building. The unexpected announcement came as quite a surprise to the building's 11 tenants: all nonprofit organizations, such as Ensemble Theatre, Lake Erie Ink and its newest tenant, Artful Cleveland. Amid this uncertainty, the tenants host a Community Weekend from today to Sunday. The weekend includes a city council open forum at the Cleveland Heights Community Center on the future of the school site; a family-friendly screening of Power Rangers; an open house at the Coventry school building featuring a free concert by Swing State; and happy hour in Pekar Park with open studios at Artful Cleveland. You'll also find a playground cleanup and community picnic in PEACE Park with a performance by Eve 'N' Stephen, and a Common Ground community discussion at Ensemble Theatre. (In partnership with the Cleveland Foundation, Common Ground is a community-wide event taking place at venues throughout Cuyahoga County. This particular event discusses the future of the Coventry school site.) There's lots more information on the website. (Josh Usmani)
