Howard Tullman’s vision for Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy was clear from day one: create a leading learning institution that prepares students for careers in digital media arts. But he has gone beyond that vision.
TFA, having recently expanded into an adjacent building for a total of three locations in Chicago, is a place that buzzes with electricity from the moment you get off the elevator on to the 5th floor. Art adorns almost every wall of the 125,000 square foot main campus in Chicago’s historic Burnham Building. Constant activity, with hallways packed with students going between classes, live broadcast sessions being held in Studio 505, or music production in the state of the art recording studios on the 6th floor, is exactly what Howard envisioned.
Some visitors say that the students are being spoiled with the best technology money can buy. But that is the standard at TFA. Take industry-leading resources, add great faculty, and throw passionate students into the mix, and you have the kind of electric vibe that drives students to seek out Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy as the place to be in Chicago.

    Three thoughts: 1) Wow! Incredibly inspiring vision made real. 2) Am I too old to sign up and go there because what a cool place to learn critical next generation skills, creative problem solving and design thinking; and 3) Fantastic video by CCS brought it all to life for me. Thanks!
