At IMPAKT you can do an internship supporting production, PR, curating, management and archive work. Most of the profiles below are available throughout the year without set deadlines or time periods. However, keep in mind that the specific tasks in each profiles vary during 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 just do an internship focused on one specific profile, but their internship is a combination of two or more profiles. For example, you can have an internship that combines Production & Organisation and Curatorial Support & Research.

Interns at IMPAKT get a monthly internship compensation. At 32 hours per week (4 days), this is €230 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.
