about us

The Young Creators and Visionaries Collaborative (YCVC) is a creative and professional development initiative sponsored by Kubitees.

Through this initiative, young adults and business owners come together to produce several fashion shows, photoshoots, and video shoots that help them collectively increase their exposure, experience, and connections.

 

THE BIG IDEA

You + The YCVC = More Experience, Exposure & Connections

Each phase is held at a different location to ensure there is diversity amongst the final products (i.e. videos and pictures). Moreover, every YCVC participant is able to voice their creative visions and see them come to life with the support and guidance from fellow YCVC members.

HOW TO JOIN

 

For a chance at joining The YCVC, please submit an interest formFrom there, you are required to submit an application that corresponds to your field of interest. Applications will be reviewed on a first come, first serve basis, and accepted candidates are able to move forward with the collaborative while other candidates are encouraged to reapply next year. If you are accepted into the YCVC, there is a required registration fee. 

 

THE GOALS

The goals for every YCVC are that each participant walks away with more exposure, more connections, and more experience. So whether you’re an aspiring model wanting to improve your portfolio, or you’re an established business seeking to debut your latest clothing collection, the YCVC offers you a network of people who can help you accomplish your goals efficiently. 

 

HOW IT WORKS

Every year, the YCVC will take place for one full day in the summer. In the morning, all participants will check in, eat breakfast, there will be introductions, then the YCVC will proceed in three phases.

Phase 1: Photoshoots

Phase 2: Fashion Shows

Phase 3: Video shoots
