Native Tongue - Members with Non- English Languages

I have opened a forum space for members whose native language is not english .. to help facilitate space for artists who like to communicate in thier own language and help each other out with navigating our site :-) , create local projects, meetups etc ...
here the language forums I have created so far

Welcoming German Speakers

Welcoming Spanish Speakers


Welcoming French Speakers

Welcoming Dutch Speakers


The Native Tongue Forums can be accessed from the Navigation Bar in our Community here

Website Art Community for Women Ning Milliande


On order for this to work out , I will ask for volunteers who would be happy to oversee their language forum as I do not speak many foreigh languages and need some help facilitating this communal space .. please message me if you are interested in supporting this venture ..

There is also an International Members Suggestion Box .. for adding new languages, suggesting projects and ideas that help support this international space in our community
