IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] creates its yearly programme and the festival programme making use of a dedicated team of producers and both internal and external curators. As an intern focusing on Programme & Production Assistance, you will be assisting the production team with the production of our events and the festival and assisting the curators in the development of new programmes.

Generally, the acitivities we organise fall in one of the following categories:

  • Exhibitions
  • IMPAKT Festival
  • Web Projects
  • Workshops

As a production assistant, you will work to help produce events that fall within one or more of the above categories, depending on the timeframe in which your internship falls and the activities we organise within that time frame.

Tasks the interns can be involved with include, but are not limited to: Contacting speakers, participants and artists, creating schedules and production scripts for events, researching themes and ideas for upcoming events, making arrangements for the transport of artworks, arranging interviews, contacting distributors and galleries about artworks and the financial settlement. 

Interns working within the festival period will generally work on specific elements of the festival, like assisting with the screenings, talks, special projects, production of the exhibition or location production.
