American Spaces


American Spaces are open-access learning and gathering places around the world that promote interaction – both in-person and virtual – among local audiences and the United States. More than 600 American Spaces are located in universities, shopping malls, libraries and other public places, as well as on embassy compounds, in more than 140 countries.

In a welcoming American-themed environment, American Spaces deliver compelling programs and activities on a wide range of themes and topics — everything from free internet access to objective news publications to advanced technology to programs on freedom of cultural expression. For example, visitors may find

        • Educational advising for those who want to study in the U.S.
        • Workshops on a range of topics from career skills to English language learning
        • Classes and clubs introducing new technologies, 21st-century digital skills and academic resources
        • Films, discussions and lectures on entrepreneurship, leadership, current events, international affairs and much more

        • American Corners are open to everyone in the community – free of charge.

Each American Corner in Zimbabwe is equipped with computers, Wi-Fi, literature and research materials.  You can also find a monthly schedule of programs that take place in the Corner, such as English language learning, film screenings, STEM exploration, entrepreneurship, and professional development activities.

Currently, Zimbabwe has three American Spaces, namely the NUST American Space in Bulawayo, Gweru American Space at Gweru Memorial Library and and Mutare American Space at Turner Memorial Library in Mutare.
