Consider Flow Arts
"Flow Arts": As the current world condition has taken us from previous live festivals and performance, many Flow Artists and Dancers are turning to virtual and broadcasted live performances of their talents. Traditionally, we as dancers, hula-hoop performers, jugglers, poi spinners and other similar disciplines, have had to gravitate towards the "Music & Performance Art" category. (With no specific tag identifying us as with Flow Artists, nor dancers). Now that Twitch has adjusted back to "Music" as the original category, we have migrated to "just chatting"; it doesn't really identify our community at all, among others that actually do feature a "just chatting" brand. With the help of a few partnered streamers, we have formed a Twitch Team - "Flowmies" that was approved earlier in Spring of this year. We've since been building and growing our community while inviting and supporting other flow artists IRL, to come join Twitch from other platforms to continue their performance routines that have otherwise been put on pause. Some of the entertainers that have become part of our Team Flowmies have an incredible following outside of Twitch; with years to decades of experience in their field. Marketing, branding, and merchandising has led them to become quite successful, and we're honored that they have joined Twitch, and our team through our interview process. However, we still lack that unique category or tag that represents what a viewer can expect from our content. More importantly, we find difficulty in discovering fellow flow artists that may be interested in a larger community with growth potential, since we cannot search for "Flow Arts" as a tag. Not even "Dance" exists (which would be a vague description of what we perform).
We would like Twitch to introduce a tag "Flow Arts" to help identify our content and reach others that may search for similar creators so that we may bring more community building exercises and foster a home for a wide spectrum of talents that we already align ourselves with on our entertainment résumés as flow artists.
This tag is really necessary, it's so hard to find flow art without a proper tag.
Please please please 🙏 I only come to Twitch for flow art and if I'm looking for someone new, it's difficult without this much needed tag. Let's make it easier!
i'm not a flow artist, but i have seen it performed several times in various venues. Please give these talented people the ability to tag their work properly.
With so much variety and different artist it would be nice for them to have their own space dedicated to the art
flow arts are completely different from the 'just chatting' portion
Flow arts makes me happy when I'm at my lowest points. Its mesmerizing and so pretty. Please do this Twitch
Do it, Twitch. Do it.
I'd love a flow arts tag!! It's odd sometimes being in just chatting when I'm not doing a ton of chatting...
Yes please. Add Flow Arts!
I love the flow girls, they are the most talented of the twitch entertainers, I would love a tag so they can more easily be found.
Let’s go Twitch!! Get flow artists the respect they deserve!!
make it happen
Flow arts are essential!
Ya poi, hula hoops and stuff. Light sticks and so on should have its own category.
I would love to see these people progress in twitch but these people don't even have their own genre that is why this tag is so important.
As a fellow Flow Artist, we lost our home when performing arts was taken away from the Music category so the least we could have is a Flow Arts tag to unite us all together once again
Most of the people I watch are flow artists and the best way I have right now to find them is to get lucky searching through just chatting. This would help so much in finding communities that I could spend time in.
I'd be so jazzed to look through a Flow Arts tag and be able to talk to the person performing in a relatively live manner. I definitely support adding this tag!
Fully support and agree, hope to see this soon.
Twitch is an incredible platform, and yet is still so underutilised.
There are so many kinds of expression, creation and performance that are broadcast on Twitch. Promoting them and at the very least making them searchable would be a step in the right direction.
