American Space & Makerspace Almaty is one of more than 600 American Spaces supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) at the U. S. Department of State.
American Space & Makerspace Almaty serves as the hub of a network of 10 American Spaces in Kazakhstan generating
innovative program ideas that support the public diplomacy goals of the U. S. Mission in Kazakhstan.
American Spaces exemplify the U. S. commitment to a core tenet of democracy:
the citizen’s right to free access to information.
American Space & Makerspace Almaty also supports the foundation of public diplomacy by creating a place for in-person engagement with Kazakhstani audiences.
Mission personnel, official visitors, and implementing partners regularly connect with Kazakhstanis, especially young leaders and young professionals, to inspire dialogue on issues that matter most to U.S.-Kazakhstan relations.
