American Spaces

Greece currently has six American Spaces throughout the country: the UTechLab at Eugenides Foundation in Athens, the Sparti TechLab at the Central Public Library in Sparta, the Veria TechLab at the Central Public Library in Veria, the Corfu TechLab at the Central Public Library in Corfu, the Athens American Center (former IRC) at the American Embassy and a Priority/Space at the Municipal Cultural Center in Xanthi, the Xanthi TechLab.

With the exception of AAC, all remaining Spaces are transformed from the traditional “Corner” concept that focused on English-language materials and programs headlined by visiting American officers into maker spaces that teach youth STEM skills.

The new spaces are also designed to function as platforms promoting the Mission’s ICS goal of combatting youth unemployment. The Xanthi TechLab and UTechLab in Athens are the furthest along in this transformation.

Still, all our Spaces are by now techlabs with Verica, Sparta and Corfu currently undergoing a minor design remodeling to be completed in 2018.

The Athens American Center in the Embassy is conducting less technology related programs, and is to be transferred in a swing space (rented office building) due to a major renovation at the compound.
