The American Center is a place full of social interaction where you can think and work creatively, build cultural bridges, collaborate, and make new acquaintances.
Held once each month at the American Center, moderated discussions cover a wide variety of topics, genres, and authors with an American focus.
The American Center also hosts a monthly movie day, where student groups and other interested individuals watch and discuss a full-length feature film, socialize, and have fun with friends and diplomats.
In collaboration with the Public Affairs Section (PAS), the American Center arranges programs led by American speakers at the U.S. Embassy as well as the Lincoln Corners to provide opportunities for Americans and Pakistanis to exchange views and opinions.
