Why you should join our Chase team
Chase is moving forward: in the coming year we want to create even more content of an even higher quality. That is why we are looking for fresh talent to come and join our current team. We are looking for bloggers (Dutch and/or English), final editors, photographers, videographers, video producers, graphic designers, social media wizards and much, much more.
Do you think you have what it takes to take Chase to the next level? Are you willing to dedicate yourself on a regular basis to making Chase an even better community? Do you want to be a part of our new and intensive coaching program, in which you can acquire even more experience and an even bigger network? Register now! Places are limited, so we need you to convince us of your talent and skills.
For the moment, Chase is a network of over 100 actively participating volunteers. Our goal is to speed up change and to stimulate and promote local artists, creatives and entrepreneurs. We asked some of them about their experience and why people should join the Chase crew. Here's what they had to say:
Yuki Asemota aka Chuki
Chase has given me the opportunity to blossom and discover new aspects of the hip hop and urban scene. As a host of Chase Verses, I can meet all the artists I listen to in real life. Crazy! And it's even crazier when they start to recognize me, like: "Aren't you Chuki Beats?"
Chase has opened many doors for me: smalltalking with or shooting a portrait pic of one of your favourite artists, that's something you don't do every day. Through Chase, I was able to take pictures of Kid Ink and Denzel Curry, among others. My best experience was at Woo Hah! where I got to see a lot of different artists on a short timespan and I was handed a 'photo pass' so I could take pictures both front and backstage. I remember having a ball with The Underachievers.
Writing for Chase enabled me to perfectly combine my love for creative writing, hip hop and fashion. I built a network of likeminded people and it left me with a nice portfolio full of articles I could use while jobhunting. Did it work? Don't know, but I did end up with PR agency OONA, which was at the top op my list.
Chase doesn't just give you the opportunity to build a professional network in a specialized area, you really get to know the Belgian urban culture as well. I got to interview artists like Joey Bada$$ and LeFto and did an internship at Chase last year. They really gave me a chance to showcase my creativity to a wide audience, which helps build a unique resumee full of one-of-a-kind experiences.
Working for Chase at the festivals is the best. You get free press access, work with a dedicated team and get the chance to interview your favourite artists. Chase has a large audience too, so you know your work will be read and appreciated.

My best experience with Chase was when we broke the record of number of viewers of that year with our first Grand Theft Bass videostream. Chase is the ideal platform to develop your talents to evolve as it were and show your developing skills to a large audience with similar interests. It's even better when you receive positive reactions of course. That's what keeps you going.
Every day with Chase is an adventure. If you would ask me for my favorite moment, I would have a big problem deciding. I have already interviewed Woodie Smalls, Mobb Deep, NoMoBS and many more and got press access to festivals like Dour and Laundry Day. Wonderful experiences.
If you hate being creative or if the idea of a supporting family full of talent doesn't appeal to you, don't register. But if you want a chance to freely develop your creative mind, and love to feel the support of tons of likeminded individuals, register now.

Ik ga vrijwilligerswerk doen in Afrika en ik neem mee: mijn smartphone en mijn selfiestick.Elk jaar reizen er tienduizenden vrijwilligers af naar Afrika. Ze helpen er in weeshuizen, bouwen mee een school op of geven Engelse les. Deze bezoeken kunnen goed bedoeld zijn, maar de lokale bevolking help je er niet altijd mee vooruit. Daarbovenop kunnen je altruïstische motieven ook in vraag worden gesteld wanneer je op sociale media te veel foto’s post van dit vrijwilligerswerk.
