We wouldn’t be able to put on such an incredible event if it wasn’t for the help of our sponsorship team. These guys boast a unique ability for sourcing the most suitable supporters to raise the profile of TEDxBrixton. Due to their strong experience in fundraising, they create and manage the budget, raise money from sponsors and oversee our partnerships program and live streaming venues. Their work is vital to our success and development.
1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m the partnerships manager, which means I look after our relationships with local businesses and sponsors.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I’ve lived her for a while now and this answer changes weekly, but at the moment I love hot yoga classes at Fierce Grace, after which I stagger down the road to Lucy’ Juices for a pick me up. As I expect most people who live here say, Brixton Market is a favourite spot – Fish Wings and Tings is an institution and Dave from Market Row wines will always find you a great bottle. Oh, and Three Eight Four on Coldharbour Lane does the best cocktails I can find.3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? I’ve been working with a lot of local businesses this year and the theme has been very meaningful for a lot of people, as it represents the mash-up of old and new that Brixton is currently experiencing.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? A few! Currently switching, depending on my mood, between Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth (he has a great TED talk by the way) and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is a favourite of my dad’s, so he’s chuffed I am finally reading it.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? An all time great and one that I always pass on to others is Jackson Katz – Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Heavy title I know, but just a genius argument and one that never fails to spark debate.
Live tweets and updates being shared on the day included quotes from some of our most inspiring speakers -like Robyn Parker, Helen Wright and Hugh Lewis, Pete Bearder and Charlotte Knowles:We were treated to incredible performances from Lil Trubz, Brandon Bennet and The Voice UK finalist Brixton’s very own Lara Lee “TEDxBrixton to me is about people coming together sharing ideas and it’s about the energy of the area. Brixton has always had a massive energy in terms of creativity and the point of having an event like this is to improve as a community,” explained Lara.
he night ended with some amazing personal favourites of our team including Kate Faragher’s speech on intuitive collaboration and Roi Cohen’s almost sci-fi presentation on brain stimulation. Cloudia Vardon challenged our audience with her experience on coping with synaesthesia and Lata Govada educated us all on crystals beginning with her opening line “crystals, the fascination of mankind!”Ideas from Europe Competition
2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I spend pretty much every day in Brixton and still love just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere, mainly walking through Market Row, Granville Arcade and Electric Avenue.3. What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? My interpretation is very much a visual one. Kaleidoscopes are beautiful ever-changing patterns that develop and grow without knowing what you are going to see next. I think that hugely describes Brixton. It is such a diverse place that is constantly changing. Every day I see new developments and the way things change but still fit together and work alongside each other.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? I’m reading a few! One is “Lean in” by Sheryl Sandberg which is a hugely motivational read that I would recommend to anyone. I’m also working my way through the new Gizzi Erskine “Healthy Eating” cookbook which is brilliant. I’ve just finished Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl” which had me in stitches throughout and gave a whole new perspective on being a woman in her twenties!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? That opinion changes daily, I have the app so constantly have a look as to what kind of talk I’d like to listen to. One that really sticks out is from this year’s TED in Vancouver by David Eagleman which we screened at the Impact Hub in Brixton. It really opens your eyes to what science can do6. What’s your biggest highlight from last year’s TEDxBrixton event? I put forward Simon Parkes as someone to approach as a speaker for 2014 and seeing him on stage after weeks of developing his talk and being such a huge fan of his story and book was a very special moment, one I will remember for a very long time.
1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m a digital and product designer specialising in user experience design. My role within the TEDxBrixton team is stage design and attendee.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? Evenings at Brixton street gym with the BlockWorkout team.3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? Every time you twist the Brixton kaleidoscope a new world appears. That’s what I love about living here- it’s unpredictable, dynamic and has so many hidden facets, you just have to go exploring.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? Dominic Wilcox- Variations on normal. It’s one of my favourites. A collection of illustrations by Dominic Wilcox.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? One of the best, taught me a lot about perception and authority. Amy Cuddy’s Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are.

It is crucial that the land on which you are planning to build the gazebo is exactly level. If this is not the case, then make the ground level by using concrete and dirt. You can also build a deck to give the gazebo a more solid base. Discuss the foundation depths with you local building authorities before beginning construction to avoid problems later.
All you need are some good gazebo plans and you can build your very own gazebo just the way you like it. This will also be much cheaper compared to buying a gazebo and you can also add any kind of furniture or accessories you want into the gazebo. A gazebo will definitely enhance the beauty of your backyard and raise the price of your property.

Decorative Magnets - If your dorm room has any metal surfaces such as a closet door or bar fridge use magnetic cut outs and letters to add a little decorative flair.
Accent Lighting - In addition to practical lighting for late-night studying consider stringing mini-lights from corner to corner in your dorm room. Adding this kind of accent lighting will complement just about any dorm room decorating ideas you've implemented.

While you're out shopping to move into your room, consider splurging on comfortable seating with lots of cushions. Nothing helps the atmosphere in a sterile dorm room like comfort and softness.

The homebuilder did not put much thought into the layout of the garage when your house was built. A low-grade slab of concrete was used, as this room is only meant to be utilitarian in any case. You don't have to put up with this going forward though, having to deal with the disintegrating surface that also attracts every drop of oil. A number of different garage floor ideas can be considered, including staining, epoxy, a vinyl surface or placing floor mats.

With many types of garden edging available in the market, you have many options to choose from. Now, if you think any of these types will work on your garden, think again. There are certain types of garden border that work effectively on a smaller garden while they could not probably do justice if applied to widely spaced park.
In this regard, make sure to consult landscape/garden artists for tips and ideas. They should know what could be perfect on your garden. In edging the garden, it is not just about something like framing the garden alone. The purpose of edging is to enhance the picture of the garden. It should complement the whole essence of the yard, allowing it to maximize its aesthetic aspect.
