Final responsibility for all Impakt projects lies in the hands of the artistic leader.
Programming is done by himself, but also by editors, host curators, and a selection committee. This entails doing a lot of research and keeping in touch regularly with artists and other institutes in the field of audiovisual art and new media. As programme assistant, you will be helping the artistic leader with his tasks, taking over practical things like finding the location of works and making appointments. This internship provides you with the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the world of arts and to build up a network. At the same time, provided you take the opportunity, you will be able to see a lot of different works and thereby increase your frame of reference of film/video art.
You are involved in:
-investigating the availability and whereabouts of films;
-contacting distributors, galleries and individual makers, and making appointments;
-composing and producing tapes.
-flexible, social, and take the initiative where possible;
-excellent in communicative skills in English (Dutch interns are also expected to have excellent communicative skills in Dutch);
-good at multi-tasking;
-motivated, eager, and willing to expand your capacities;
-independent and have an active working attitude.
