IMPAKT – critical and creative views on contemporary media culture

Over Impakt

Impakt presents audiovisual arts and reflections on media culture.

We deal with questions about society, digital culture and media from different angles and disciplines such as arts, academia and technology. Or, to be a bit more specific: Impakt presents critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and innovative audiovisual arts in an interdisciplinary context are presented in events, film programs and talks. Founded as a festival for audiovisial arts in 1988, Impakt organises the annual Impakt Festival, this year taking place from 28 October- 1 November 2015 and themedThe Future of the Past: a five-day multi media festival with exhibitions, lectures and screenings at different locations in the city of Utrecht (NL).

Next to this, Impakt runs a year-round operation with a residency programme Impakt Works and regular Impakt Events: short projects or screenings centering a certain theme, movement, or artist. We also launch annual net art projects on our web gallery and are in the process of digitising Impakt’s screening history since 1988 on our Impakt Online Channel.

  • Stage

    Impakt biedt het hele jaar door stages in verschillende vormen, lengtes en richtingen. Er zijn geen deadlines of vaste data om je aan te melden. In onze ogen is het minimum van een zinvolle werkperiode een periode van minstens drie maanden. Bekijk de verschillende stageprofielen hier. Een stage bij Impakt kan zijn in het kader van een studie (voor ECTs) of juist het opdoen van professionele ervaring. In beide gevallen ontvangen we graag een korte motivatie, samen met een CV en een ingevulde vragenlijst, ter attentie van Ilga Minjon, via interns[at]impakt[punt]nl.
