Why Do We Need Your Support?

Our work is made possible by the generous support of private and public sponsors. We work to ensure that the majority of our exhibitions and events are free and open to everyone.

Calvert 22 Foundation is the first British arts organisation and registered charity set up to connect creative practitioners from eastern Europe, Russia, the Balkans, and Central Asia with the west. Our aim is to enrich perceptions of this region, acting as a platform for dialogue and discovery, with learning and education at the core of all our projects.


We strive to educate and entertain, and welcome everyone interested in our work to become part of the Calvert 22 family.

We need your generosity to further develop our projects supporting artists and other creative figures, as well as scholars and students.

How Is Your Money Spent?

Be it a group show of emerging practitioners or a major art showcase, a film programme or a family-friendly workshop, every little you may be able to donate helps us realise our educational and artistic projects.

Your support will also help us offer more unique opportunities to students by running internship and lecture programmes with leading UK universities. We work with young people from our region to get expert advice from leading professionals from the UK and around Europe, facilitating access to unrivalled knowledge.

Our online guide to the contemporary culture of the New East, The Calvert Journal, prides itself on uncovering a rising generation of artistic talent from the region. Your support will help us continue reporting on the region’s culture and creativity through a mix of high quality content including daily features, news, interviews and photography.

We also run our wonderful space in Shoreditch with a dedicated bookshop and small café area.

Current campaign

New East Cinema — Contemporary cinema from eastern Europe and beyond

New East Cinema is a monthly film series set to uncover the most thought-provoking, daring and vibrant cinema coming from today’s New East. Initiated in October 2015 by Calvert 22 Foundation and curated by The New Social, the project was received with excitement, the feedback being overwhelming positive.

Following the project’s success, in April 2016 we were delighted to partner with the Barbican Centre to bring additional screenings to a very diverse London audience. The film series debuted with the UK premiere of Bulgarian/Romanian co-production Viktoria and then took viewers on a journey across various New East countries including Poland, Serbia, Russia and Kazakhstan.

After seven successful screenings hosted at our space and three at the Barbican Centre, we need your support to continue this project in 2017.
