American Spaces

American Spaces are cultural and information centers around the world that provide free and open access for members of local communities to learn more about the United States, develop skills, and access a wide range of resources. Funded by the U.S. Department of State and hosted at U.S. embassies, consulates, and various local partner institutions, approximately 600 American Spaces in 140 countries host programs and events that foster learning, discussion, and civic engagement around democratic principles.

American Spaces offer modern and welcoming environments equipped with advanced technologies, helpful staff, and innovative programming. Visitors can explore and share ideas, access information, and participate in activities that develop professional skills or provide educational opportunities. American Spaces also provide communities overseas an opportunity to meet and engage U.S. citizens in person or virtually to learn more about American culture, education, and more.
