IMPACT stands for ‘International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking, Artists, Concepts and Techniques’. The idea for the first IMPACT conference was developed by Richard Anderton and Professor Stephen Hoskins based on their joint visits to the American Southern Graphics Council conferences in the early 90’s. They realised there was no international forum specifically for printmakers and created IMPACT – initially based on the Southern Graphics concept but the increasing thrust of IMPACT has been to create an academic forum whilst maintaining a showcase for print practioners.
