Impakt Festival 2016;


Do you want to be part of an organization, full of media, art, music, film and discoveries? Are you enjoying your studies in the cultural field, but are you also eager to check how it actually works in real life? Are you a young graduate who could use a bit more real experience?

A brief introduction to who we are: The Impakt Organization was founded in 1988. We present critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and innovative audiovisual arts, in an interdisciplinary context. Our aim is to identify emerging paradigms in transglobal culture, by focusing on the triangular relationship between society, media and arts. To this end, Impakt organizes the annual Impakt Festival each Fall, featuring exhibitions, screenings, video art, lectures and music. Next to this, Impakt is a year-round operation based in Utrecht, where we run an artists’ residency program and monthly events.

The Impakt Festival 2017: Haunted Machines & Wicked Problems will take place from 25 October – 29 October.

We are looking for interns! Please get in touch and send us your CV and the internship questionnaire.

There’s different basic profiles we offer, as seen in our internship overview.

We are used to customizing an internship’s profile in accordance to Impakt’s activities on the one hand, and your talents and interests on the other.
We can’t offer monetary reimbursement. We offer a valuable expansion of your network in the cultural sector; realistic experience with possibilities to grow; practical knowledge of the field in which you are interested – i.e. production, film video, programming, artist coordination, pr and writing, finances or managing.

What’s on the menu? See the different internship profiles and the guidelines to apply here.

Practicalities: there are no deadlines for the internships, as Impakt is a year-round operation. We require internships to last at least three months, for a minimum of three days a week. Our office hours are from 10:00h-18:00h. If you are a foreign applicant: we cannot reimburse travel expenses to the Netherlands, but we can pay for (train) travels if a selected intern lives outside of Utrecht. We offer a very nice daily lunch table!

We are also looking for people to assist us less intensively before, during and after the festival. The short term hands on board, we call Volunteers. Are you interested to get a shout out in case we’re scheduling the production rides, catering, hosting, et cetera? E-mail us at volunteers[at]
