The Calvert Journal is an award-winning online magazine dedicated to exploring the culture and creativity of the New East: eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia and Central Asia.
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 has established itself as the leading authority on contemporary culture, creativity and travel in the region, delivering a mix of daily features, news, interviews and photography.
The Calvert Journal aims to offer an inspiring, carefully considered take on the people, places and creative projects of the region. Our vision is to bring context and insight to a part of the world that, despite its richness, often goes underreported.
Based in London — and with content-sharing partnerships with international titles including The Guardian, Business Insider and The Moscow Times — we tell the story of the New East’s contemporary culture via a network of writers and contributors stationed across its many countries and time zones.
