American Corners

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.

With nearly 600 locations worldwide, the American Spaces offer 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 are also places to meet and engage American citizens in person or virtually to learn more about U.S. culture and values.

American Spaces include American Centers, American Corners, and Binational Centers, all of which operate on different models. All the programs of the American Spaces are offered free of charge to the public.
