Dozens of French-speaking content creators are gathered at the CEPS of the Université de Moncton this weekend for the Acadie Stream event.

They raised nearly $7,000 for the Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick.

Acadie Stream brought together streamers, which can be translated into French as instavideasts, from across Canada. This is the first event of its kind in New Brunswick.

The whole thing could obviously be followed live on the best-known broadcasting platform of this medium, Twitch. It allows you to interact in real time with the content broadcaster.

For one of the participants, who broadcasts under the pseudonym TheLeoVinci, the advantage of streaming is precisely this interaction with his audience.

It's a medium where you truly connect with the world. It's more personal, it's more interactive, he explains.

“You develop real relationships, unlike with the TV, where there really is a wall between the screen and the person.

— TheLeoVinci, Twitch Content Creator

We, as we are there with the world, we talk, we respond, and we develop relationships, he says .

She adds that the vitality of the French-speaking community of streamers outside Quebec is of great value. I know what it's like to live in a linguistic minority, explains the one who lived in Toronto for three years.

Acadian streamer Alsenic is one of the instigators of the project. People who follow him on Twitch have told him they've been through some tough times, but spending virtual time with him has helped them.

It was not going well, then just spending my evenings with you chatting, laughing, that changed everything, he heard.
