The Calvert Journal is a guide to the contemporary culture of the new east: the post-Soviet world, the Balkans and the former socialist states of central and eastern Europe.
From art and film to architecture and design, avant-garde culture from these countries has helped shape our view of modern life. But it remains an underreported and unfamiliar part of the world to many.
Today, thanks to a rising generation of artistic talent, the new east is in the midst of tremendous change. This is the inspiration for The Calvert Journal, which covers the region’s culture and creativity through a mix of daily features, news, interviews and photography.
