American Spaces

American Spaces are local, physical locations for foreign residents to connect with people, ideas, and the United States through collaboration and self-discovery.  They promote critical thinking and thoughtful discussion of issues important to the U.S.’s global interests as well as the U.S.-Brazil relationship. American Spaces – as well as the U.S. overall – is committed to a particular core-tenet of democracy: Citizens’ free access to information. Each location counteracts negative perceptions and disinformation about the United States by creating opportunities to build bridges of mutual respect and understanding between the people of the United States and Brazil.
