Location: Filmtheater ‘t Hoogt
The COUCH.CLUB is the place in the Impakt Festival for highlighting the backgrounds of the program. There are lectures about net.art.

The couch.club also offers artists the opportunity to give demonstrations and ‘sneak previews’. With respect to the music program, there is a small workshop and a special performance concert by Goodiepal from Denmark. For the couch.clubs in ’t Hoogt, the normal entrance fees will be charged, while those in Kikker will be free of charge.
