Curated Sessions and Programming: In partnership with creative arts industry leaders and in response to the evolving needs of the arts media and entertainment industries, AME Institute Burbank curates programming to equip educators with the skills and knowledge their students need to succeed in today’s ever changing creative arts industries. These programs will offer specialized training in focused areas such as visual arts, design, theater, film/television, dance, vfx/gaming/animation, and more, providing educators with the tools and insight their students need to thrive in a rapidly changing landscape. Educators are given the opportunity to design their own path of programming over the three days to allow for a variety of educational opportunities that may span multiple disciplines and areas of focus. AME Institutes begin with a kick-off presentation and keynote presenter. The 2024 Keynote Speaker is to be announced. Previous keynote speakers include actress Phylicia Rashad, Meowolf Founder Vince Kadlubek, and Warner Bros. Executive Dan Dark.

Pre-Institute Special Programming: To foster growth and continued education for the AME teachers, AME Institute Burbank will be offering multiple options for pre-institute programming.

This offering will be available Monday, June 24th and Tuesday, June 25th from 9am-4pm.
