we are looking for media talents

Are machines becoming more intelligent than people? Will they follow their heart or their hardware? Should we be scared of this moment, the ‘Singularity’ – or perhaps, take a closer look at ourselves within our computerized systematics? In 2014, Impakt focuses on Soft Machines: Where the Optimized Human Meets Artificial Empathy. The Impakt Festival 2014 takes place from 29 October – 2 November in Utrecht.

This month IMPAKT launches the Soft Machines BLOG that will function as a "guide" from now till the festival. We are currently looking for students that are enthusiastic to participate and contribute to the SoMa Blog.

There are several possibilities:
write articles / interviews
write an essay
photography at IMPAKT Events
filmed interviews
et cetera (we are very open for your skills and ideas)
Contributions can be in English or in Dutch!

What do you get?
publish experience (the contributions will be published on our website and probably some in the festival newspaper)
tickets for the IMPAKT festival 2014

Interested?

If you are motivated to contribute to the IMPAKT Soft Machines BLOG send an e-mail to soma@impakt.nl telling us some words about you and in which form you would like to participate (which topics related to Soft Machines are you interested in, how much time would you have, ect.)
