Artists

Carl Lopes

My paintings are a respectful nod to centuries of influential African design and tradition. Colors, patterns and compositions pay tribute to ancestral heritages and cultures, yet maintain a direct contemporary vibe. Masks, portraits, birds, and fish are embellished with geometric motifs and designs that visually pop.

Airbrushed acrylics, holographic papers, glass beads, and jewelry are attached to wood panels and coated with high gloss poly-resin. The paintings appear as if they are stained glass, and lit from behind. The intentional stunning appearances leave viewers amazed and intrigued.

About

Hello and welcome to Amplify POC Cape Cod. I am writing to inform you about an initiative I’ve started to help amplify the businesses owned by People of Color (POC) in our community. After the death of George Floyd, I felt compelled to do more than attend a protest and march. As a woman of color married to a Black man with three beautiful brown children together, this issue was personal to me. And as a leader in my community, several people had reached out to me wanting to support the Black community and asked for a list of Black owned businesses; after researching I realized there was no such list for the Cape Cod area, so I created one.
My vision for this list, which is now an Excel database has grown. The directory incorporates local businesses owned by people of color and it broken up into categories such as Retail, Lodging, Professional Services, ect…
In order to promote racial justice and positive progressive change, it’s important to focus on local racial equity initiatives, including monetary donations and support for POC owned businesses on Cape Cod. We also know that COVID has disproportionately impacted POC. We’re hoping that as a community initiative, we can help one another and create a more equitable Cape Cod by fostering growth within and for our community.


Our Mission

Amplify POC Cape Cod promotes racial equity to POC owned businesses by providing resources that enhance visibility, increase patronage, and highlight their successes and contributions in order to provide sustainability and reduce the wealth gap caused by systemic racism.


Our Vision

The vision of Amplify POC Cape Cod is to promote economic power and sustainability by eliminating the wealth gap for POC on Cape Cod with an accessible online resource of POC-owned businesses, and to provide opportunities for learning and advancement for POC by providing classes in financial literacy, banking relations, asset building, home ownership, and entrepreneurship


Our Ask

Firstly, I would like to acknowledge that we are aware that COVID has taken an enormous toll on the economy and people’s finances. People who would like to support POC owned businesses and this initiative may not be able to give as much, and we are appreciative of any donation and any amount is welcome.

We are looking for sponsors to support this grassroots initiative. We are seeking monetary donations from local organizations, businesses, and community members for the following: to purchase a website domain and platform, for branding, to hire a web designer,, and for labor and maintenance over time. Please find the budget and proposal below. There are four tiers of support outlined below. You may also donate any amount that you wish, if it does not appear below.
