American Spaces are vibrant, active places that offer interactive, engaging programs to capture the interest of visitors. They base their programs on the Six Pillars of American Spaces and their respective countries’ ICS goals. The Office of American Spaces is committed to assisting American Spaces in offering a full calendar of excellent programs.

In addition, the Office of American Spaces has developed Program Content Categories for American Spaces to use in their program design and reporting. The categories encompass a wide variety of American Spaces and Department of State programming themes and priorities. By incorporating the Program Content Categories into all aspects of American Spaces’ operations – strategic planning, funding requests, program design, and evaluation – Spaces help demonstrate the impact of their programming in a measurable way.
