Open Call for IMPAKT Festival 2023

Dec. 13, 2022

IMPAKT Festival 2023 is looking for curators, programmers or organisers working at the interface of digital rights, art and technology to take part in next year’s edition. ‘Reclaiming Digital Agency’ is the theme of IMPAKT 2023, and it will address digital rights, data control, privacy, as well as digital agency and lack thereof.

IMPAKT Festival 2023 collaborates with CODE, a co-creation project on digital agency that IMPAKT initiated in 2021 and has been organising for two years with partners in Germany and Belgium. CODE refers to an ethical code of conduct and legislations that governments and Big Tech companies should adopt to protect users’ rights. IMPAKT Festival 2023 will present the results of the CODE programme so far, together with additional discursive events, performances, films and artworks, and discussions with politicians focused on the political and economic exploitation of technology’s power.
