The United States Consul General F. John Bray announced earlier today that the Co-creation Hub will be their official partner in setting up American Spaces in Yaba, Lagos. With over 700 Spaces in 152 countries worldwide, American Spaces provides environments where visitors can connect and learn about the United States.
The Office of American Spaces develops and supports modern, effective physical platforms for public diplomacy engagement with foreign targeted audiences in support of United States foreign policy objectives. Combining technology with aesthetics, the Spaces provides dynamic physical spaces that have an American look and feel.
According to the American Spaces 2015 annual report, there are certain adjustments that will be made to the Spaces this year. Two of such adjustments are internet upgrades for digital engagement and technology that enables virtual programming.
With the new partnership with the United States Embassy, the CcHub now has a total of five floors in the Yaba, Lagos facility. Bosun Tijani and the CcHub team are one step closer to acquiring the entire building which is strategically based in a technology hub.
