Impact does not provide compensation, but travel expenses are reimbursed and lunch is provided. Of course you will have access to the festival, work with nice colleagues and gain valuable experience for your resume.

About Impakt
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 autumn, 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 events.

The theme of the Impakt Festival 2017 is Haunted Machines and Wicked Problems. Curators Natalie Kane and Tobias Revell will investigate the relationship between technology, mythology and magic.

Impakt is located in a characteristic and spacious building in Utrecht. In addition to the office, this property also offers accommodation for 2 residency studios, an archive and an event space. The core of Impakt is a small hard-working team of 2 fte. In the run-up to the festival the occupation grows to 5 fte. Internships form an essential part of the organization and many volunteers participate in the festival.
