Affiliate American Space (Voice of Istiqlal)

The American Space at Istiqlal Mosque is a partnership program between the Public Affairs Section of Embassy of the United States of America in Indonesia with the Voice Of Istiqlal Division of Istiqlal National Mosque in Jakarta. This partnership was solidified by an MOU on April 6, 2023.

This space offers a wide range of public programs, print and multimedia resources to facilitate the general public interested in learning about American policies, society, culture and values, as well as English learning and study in the U.S.  Visitors also have access to eLibraryUSA, a virtual library with access to scholarly and research journals as well as news and magazines.

This is the only American Space located in a Mosque and includes outreach activities focused on democracy, interfaith dialogue, human rights, and diversity along with promoting education and skills-building for youth ages 18-35.

The Space is a large, flexible room in the Mosque library with books, computers, and a projector and screen.  It can accommodate about 40 people for in-person programs.

The American Space at Istiqlal Mosque is open to the general public and visitors may benefit from the resources and programming for free.
