IMPAKT – Centre for Media Culture is a media arts organisation based in Utrecht and founded in 1988. IMPAKT presents critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and on innovative audio-visual arts in an interdisciplinary context. IMPAKT’s aim is to identify urgent issues in our digital and transglobal culture, by focusing on the relationship between society, media, technology, and arts. Furthermore, IMPAKT examines issues around politics, science, and popular culture from different angles aiming to present creative and innovative approaches and stir debates with critical ideas on common beliefs in society at large as well as towards dominant perceptions in arts and academia.

IMPAKT organises activities throughout the year including IMPAKT Works, a residency program, and IMPAKT Events, a regular series of exhibitions, panels, artist talks, presentations, and screenings centering on a given theme, movement, or artist. The IMPAKT Channel is a platform where art projects made for the internet are presented, along with curated programs featuring film and video art. Last but not least, the IMPAKT Archive works on digitising IMPAKT’s screening history back in 1988, when the first IMPAKT Festival was organised.

IMPAKT’s 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.
