A hub for cultural and creative industries
The Herberger Institute Creative Economy Hub LA connects students to one of the world’s most important centers of cultural and creative industries, allowing the Herberger Institute to meet the needs of students while also contributing to the communities and industry in California. These connections boost the Herberger Institute’s efforts to ensure that all students and alumni, regardless of social background, have an equal chance to help tell our nation’s — and our world’s — stories.
ASU FIDM in the Herberger Institute is designed to prepare the next generation of fashion students. ASU FIDM students have the opportunity to learn from expert faculty with extensive industry knowledge and work in cutting-edge facilities with professional equipment, both in downtown Phoenix and downtown Los Angeles at the ASU California Center Grand.
The Creative Economy Hub LA will house labs/studios that are designed to provide use-inspired research and creative work in key areas of transformation for the creative industries. The first lab launched is Borderlands Studios.
MacArthur Fellows Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera are leading a lab for Latino filmmaking and representation in film.
