One of the most popular programs offered at the American Center is our Speakers Series, featuring U.S. experts in diverse fields including politics, culture, economics and education that share their knowledge and engage with our audiences on a variety of topics. Over the years, the American Center has been proud to host U.S. Ambassadors, politicians, Olympic athletes, prominent business leaders, astronauts, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, artists and many others, who have presented lectures, workshops and round tables for the public. We have also had the pleasure of hosting many local Russian experts, including leaders of local NGOs, journalists, scientists, alumni of U. S. Government exchange programs, directors of museums and many others, who have shared their vast wealth of knowledge and research in areas focused on U.S.-Russian cooperation. Lectures are open and free to the public and are an excellent opportunity for you to meet leading experts, improve your English skills, and further your knowledge.
