AEM Artist Forums are Arts & Entertainment Institute(AEI) alumni gatherings in Los Angeles, California. These forums include lectures and discussions on the practical application of a Christian worldview to visual art, music, performing art and all forms of film and media. Through these monthly AEI Alumni gatherings AEM serves the local Los Angeles/Hollywood community by encouraging, praying and discussing relevant issues artists and creative professionals face in their creative process, their professional careers and their spiritual life. These meetings are only open to AEI Alumni and friends.
We have quarterly informational meetings open to guests who want to hear more about the Arts & Entertainment Institute and participate in one of the lectures.
For additional information or to attend the Artist Forums or Arts & Entertainment Institute, email Institute@a-e-m.org

14th Annual Hollywood Awards Party, March 4, 5pm
Truth telling is a noble goal of many artists. We long for honesty in relationships, and even as audience members we long for honesty in the artwork we view, or the films we watch. This Biblical command calls us to refrain from ‘bearing false witness’. It sounds so simple, but people fail to understand this commandment all the time. Join us to find out what the real context of this commandment means, and some lively discussions about what this means for artwork as well as our personal lives.
