When art becomes an escape from depression and trauma

South Florida has a vast community of flow artists who gather in parks, on beaches and at other public spaces to practice. Flow arts include a variety of physical activities with continuous movement, such as poi, fire spinning, Hula-Hooping, acroyoga, slacklining, dancing and juggling. For many people, flow arts have become a tool to overcome depression and traumas such as sexual assault.
