The mission of the Calvert 22 Foundation is to nurture and celebrate the contemporary culture and creativity of the New East – eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia – enriching perceptions of the region and furthering international understanding.
Calvert 22 Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation committed to dialogue and discovery, to the development of international creative networks, and to the role of learning and education as the basis for knowledge sharing and institutional exchange.
Art + Culture
Calvert 22 Space
Our London headquarters hosts seasonal programmes, events, talks and screenings for a first-hand experience of the contemporary culture and creativity of the New East.
Calvert 22 Space’s main objective is to nurture cultural links and showcase the very best in contemporary thought and expression from the region.
Our award-winning online magazine has established itself as the leading authority on contemporary culture, creativity and travel in the New East region.
The Calvert Journal delivers a daily briefing on travel, art, design, film, architecture and fashion through a mix of reportage, interviews, photography and video developed with the help of locally-stationed contributors and a London-based team of journalists. Take a look here.
Research + Innovation
The Calvert Forum
Operating as a think tank, as well as a digital and physical forum for discussion and learning, Calvert Forum conducts research and provides practical solutions for creative communities in Russian and eastern European cities. Since its launch in September 2013, Calvert Forum has hosted a series of international conferences and workshops in different Russian cities including St Petersburg, Moscow, Voronezh and Kazan.
Creative Capital Index
In 2016 experts from Calvert 22 Foundation, in partnership with PwC Russia, began to develop the large-scale Creative Capital Index project. The practical purpose of the Index is to evaluate and compare the potential of Russia’s most dynamic cities in terms of their prospects for economic modernisation and their investment appeal.
