KaChick Academy Cultivating creative seeds

Introduction

KaChick is much more than a marketplace to connect photographers with customers. We want to give something back to our younger generation. We see every youth as a seed whom we can incubate to ignite the brightest sparkle in the future.





How?

We do this by creating a community to gather passionate souls in the creative-related space across generations. We challenge the status quo of ways to learn creative subjects. Instead of studying a specific genre, you will be exposed to a wide range of practical knowledge via experience sharing, workshops and job shadowing opportunities.
