Foundation / Art Space

Calvert 22 is the UK’s leading cultural institution dedicated to promoting and supporting the new culture of the New East. Situated at the intersection of culture, economics and the arts, Calvert 22 works as a think net, building partnerships and collaborating with international companies and top universities to conduct research and deliver in-depth analysis on the creative industries of the region.

Our mission is to build opportunities for emerging creative talent in the New East. It is to invest in the skills and experience of young professionals on the cusp of big things, and to facilitate connections, expertise, and experience which will help give them a leg up in their career trajectory. Culture and the arts have the power to change how we live and why we live, and we believe that by giving young creative people in an underreported region the chance to be seen and heard in front of an international audience, they will be able to take an active role in shaping how we see the world, and how the world sees culture.
