The Calvert Journal
The Calvert Journal was launched as a project of Calvert 22 Foundation in March 2013. Today, the Journal is the world’s leading publication for culture, innovation, photography and travel in the New East: Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.
In its daily features, news, photography and travel reports, The Calvert Journal stands apart for its wealth of original research, striking photography, and clarity of insight on a region that, despite its richness, often goes under-reported.
With an editorial team based in Somerset House, London, and a network of regional contributors from Warsaw to Vladivostok, the Journal seeks to bring context and insight to the places, people and creative projects of the region.
