The Calvert Journal
Founded in 2009 in London, the mission of Calvert 22 is to build opportunity for emerging talent in the creative economy of the New East (eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia), by showcasing the contemporary art and culture of the region and deepening knowledge through in-depth research and analysis.
In 2014 The Calvert Journal was launched as a project of Calvert 22. Today, the Journal is the world’s leading publication for culture, innovation, photography and travel in the New East.
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.
