Creative future

The Calvert Forum is a new collaborative project between the London-based Calvert 22 Foundation and St. Petersburg State University Department of Liberal Arts and Sciences (Smolny College). Operating as a think tank the Calvert Forum aims to explore the impact of creative industries on economic, social, and urban development, and generate new solutions capable of unlocking the creative potential of Russian and Eastern European cities.
