Connect, Share, Learn
American Spaces are local places for foreign residents to connect – with people, with ideas and with the United States through collaboration and self-discovery. This fully revised website is the go-to, one-stop shop for everything American Spaces. Look for useful guidance and resources in the management, programming, training and design sections.
We are excited to introduce a Community Forum to enable everyone working with American Spaces around the world to connect, help each other, learn and share creative ways to engage audiences. Register to start contributing your thoughts and ideas and make the Forum a vibrant sharing space for our community.
The American Spaces Handbook is in the process of being revised as a “living” digitized document. As it is developing, it will provide practical information to help American Spaces leaders and staff — including American Corner coordinators and staff and Binational Center staff — manage American Spaces.
