IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] presents critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and explores issues at the intersection of society, digital culture, technology and media from different perspectives and disciplines, such as art, science and politics. 

What we do

IMPAKT is a media arts organization based in Utrecht and founded in 1988. Through talks, screenings, exhibitions and the annual IMPAKT Festival, we present critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and arts, in an interdisciplinary context. By focusing on the relationship between society, media, technology and arts, we examine issues around politics, science and popular culture, presenting creative and innovative perspectives and  critical ideas on dominant perceptions towards arts and societal beliefs at large. 

Throughout the year, we organise a variety of activities, such as residency programmes, exhibitions, panels, artist talks, presentations and screenings. Our main project is the annual IMPAKT Festival, a five-day multimedia event that includes exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, panels, performances, presentations, and artist talks at locations in Utrecht, the Netherlands and online at Planet IMPAKT.

On the IMPAKT Channel we present online art projects, along with curated programmes featuring film and video art. With the IMPAKT Archive, we offer a digital version of IMPAKT’s screening history, dating back to the first IMPAKT Festival in 1988.Feel free to have a look.

At IMPAKT you can do an internship focusing on production, PR, curating and management assistance. Most of these internships are available throughout the year without set deadlines or time periods. However, keep in mind that some functions might not be available on certain times of the year depending on our specific needs for that period. 

Within IMPAKT, we believe in giving our interns a diverse set of tasks with which they can learn the many facets that come with work in the cultural field. Therefore, most of our interns don’t focus on a single element, but take on a mix between different tasks. For example, you can have an internship that focuses both on productional work and PR work.

Interns at IMPAKT get a monthly internship compensation. At 32 hours per week (4 days), this is €236 per month. If you’re doing an internship of less hours, we adjust internship compensations accordingly. Additionally, any travel costs made for your internship can be reimbursed.
