Hi there! 

The flow arts community is here to formally ask the livestreaming platform Twitch.tv to create a flow arts content tag for their creators who perform flow arts on the platform. The flow arts community is growing on Twitch and we currently don't have a way to categorize our content through the current tag system. 

Flow Arts? What's that? 
According to a flow arts industry leader, Flowtoys.com, "The term "flow arts" encompasses the emerging movement-based artforms that integrate dance and creative exploration of movement with skill-based prop manipulation. The Flow Arts draw from a multitude of ancient and modern movement disciplines from Maori poi spinning to modern firedancing, from martial arts and taichi to circus arts and hula hooping.​" 

Why would a flow art tag be important? 

  • The tag system on Twitch allows us to categorize our content on the platform. Currently, there has been space carved out for tags like "contemporary dance" and "hip-hop dance" but none of the current dance-related tags are accurate to our practice and how the greater flow art community names itself. There are more and more flow art creators coming to the platform every month, and these creators deserve the ability to accurately categorize their content. 

  • Content tags allow for more discoverability from like-minded individuals. When browsing Twitch, one can search for streams with specific tags to find content that they like to watch. With a flow arts tag, the flow artists on the platform can more easily connect with other flow artists and enthusiasts. This would be a win-win for both our community as well as Twitch as a platform, since this tag will create a more hospitable experience for flow artists who are just joining the platform and will increase user retention. The faster we can all find each other, the better, and a tag would help this so much!
