The vision for American Spaces today is for them to be vibrant, active places that offer interactive, engaging programs that can capture the interest of visitors and help them:

  • learn about, discuss and debate foreign policy, social and global issues
  • gain skills they can use to improve their lives, their communities and the world
  • interact with people they might not otherwise meet and
  • generally expand their minds and horizons.

To  help American Spaces do this, the Office of American Spaces is committed to providing programmatic resources that both U.S. government staff and non-U.S. government partner staff can use to make it as easy as possible to offer a full calendar of excellent programs. New packaged programs and other guidance and materials will be regularly posted in this section of the website.  Also check out the Community Forum to get ideas and materials from other American Spaces.
