iMAL aims to support artistic and creative practices using technologies as their medium. We are an Art Centre hosting exhibitions, conferences and performances around arts & cultures in a digital world but also a reflexion centre focused on research and debates around the critical issues of our technological society. Our creative Fablab encourages social inclusion and innovation towards a more sustainable development. With our educational programme, we aim to empower our community and to inspire the next generation to participate in digital culture.
We’re looking for Students or volunteers for reception desk iMAL.
From 05 March to 31 May iMAL presents the exhibition Quantum. In Search of the Invisible.
Do you find joy in receiving people and show them around in an exhibition? And you are not afraid to speak your languages (FR, ENG, NL)? Do you have a special love for (digital) art? Or maybe even a scientific lump?
In that case you are very welcome as a student, intern or volunteer to help out at our reception desk and caretaking for the exhibition.
