USArt Berlin Forum

Ever worry about all those things posted online that are searchable? Well, we have created an Online Forum that is completely private with exception of a few sections for USArtBerlin members to post their services such as lessons and workshops to the Berlin public. This is merely a subsection of the main website but it is designed to allow the community of American Artists of all media to collaborate, find resources such as grants, network, and discuss issues unique to their community.
The Yahoo List will be ending and the new community is taking form. This opportunity will allow American Citizens of the arts based in Berlin to find support and community where earlier there has been a smattering of various networks. Unique aspects of the forum include a bartering area for members along with advertising your studio or apartment for rent to the community alone. All members forums are not searchable so Google (and others) will not see your conversations, info or media.

Joining the forum takes a mere 5 minutes!
