ICON has called Burbank home for many years now, but with this new campus, we are moving to the heart of Downtown. In a city known around the world for its contributions to entertainment and popular culture, Downtown is where the people working in those industries come to connect and socialize.
An up and coming neighborhood, Downtown Burbank is home to food and fun for all ages and budgets. Watch the latest movies at one of the three local theaters. Play a round of pool at the famous Fantasia pool hall. Enjoy healthy cuisine at spots like Sweetgreen and The Asian Project or gather with friends for some drinks and a game at Yard House.
ICON’s new campus is a testament to our commitment to providing young creatives the best education possible. As we grow, so does our reach and influence, and we are using both to support the Collective in any way we can. The possibilities of what will result from the creative synergy happening her are endless, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in our new home.
