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.
Flowmies Like Spoopykit Pineapple Hoops and many others are doing what few are doing on twitch. Not just entertaining they are Impacting Lives On a deep positive and therapeutic level. It is an alternative from the usual gaming videos. In fact gamers Love to watch flow to relax and get focus before Hoping on there usual streams. This is a must a no brainer Let thia happen
Yes Yes Yes!!! This is absolutely an art form and should be supported by Twitch!!!
I fully support this idea! If Twitch is going to be the best it can be, it needs to be specific in what exactly people can expect from a stream!
Come on twitch, just give us the Flow Arts tag please. All the homies (and flowmies) want you to make a Flow Arts tag.
it would help all streamers out
I would love to have this, I'd like to stream my flow arts practice!
Sooooo hoping this happens. As a flow artist it would be so cool to have this tag as a way to promote my flow and support others! Let's go!
This would definitely be useful when streaming. I often stream juggling, and wonder if I should be tagging my stream as Just Chatting, Art, or something else. Having a Flow Arts tag would help a lot, and potentially bring more flow artists to Twitch.
That sounds like a wonderful suggestion to me! I'd be very interested in watching such livestreams and having a proper category to find them sounds perfect :)
🤞🏾 I hope it happens... would be nice to be able to find other prop dancers a bit easier
it couldn't hurt
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
