Meet Carlos and find out how his unique crafts re:power his local economy.
Driven by Sustainability: He sources his inputs from local manufacturers that have leftover materials. Because where others see needless scraps, he sees rare opportunities for recrafting and resharing, while reducing impact on the environment.
Committed to Inclusion: He sources his supplies from other crafers in the neighborhood. Because his appreciation of his community strengthens his creative process and imagination.
Built on Diversity: He sources his designs from uncensored street art. Because appreciating street-smart creativity uniquely celebrates the artist in us all, but also helps elevate new and younger talent.
Passionate about Education: He applies his unconventional skills in a radically educational way. Because by building a bridge between street art and handicrafts he teaches his audience about the uniqueness of his neighborhood and its history.
Empowered through Decentralization: He helps grow micro-entrepreneurship in order to drive local economic revitalization. Because micro-entrepreneurs uniquely repurpose, re-engage, redefine, reappreciate, and repower their communities while creating new local jobs for everyone involved.
In a world that’s increasingly becoming more and more Artificial, real handcrafters like Carlos are heroes in disguise.
So, join the movement, help create local jobs, and always #KeepItReal.
Because micro-entrepreneurs are real superheroes. Period.
They simply make us stronger.
Meet Carlos and help us build a more Sustainable, Inclusive, Diverse, Educational, and Decentralized future. A future that’s not just one dimensional, but uniquely #5SIDED.
