Their work is vital to our success and development.
Binki Taylor was the first of our 17 speakers to take to the stage and left the crowd in standing ovation with a moving story on her childhood as a black girl fostered by an all-white family. “I know exactly what it’s like to have a voice that isn’t understood. You feel like you don’t belong. Under the skin is where I found my voice. I had to tackle how to belong from the bottom.”Rebecca Trevalyan, Sam Hall and Steadman Scott also delivered their pieces on what Brixton means to them and thoughts on improving local communities. “What does Afewee mean? It’s for the community, it’s for us. Our mission is to put belief, passion, hard-work and discipline together,” Steadman explained.The big day: Our favourite moments!
According to over 600 attendees, TEDxBrixton 2015 certainly lived up to its expectations. Queues formed outside the Brixton Recreation Centre before doors even opened and at 1pm our founder Stephanie Busari welcomed the audience by delivering a compelling speech.

This is one of the types of garage shelving arrangements used in many places where there is not much space even for a car. There's the advantage of taking your shelving high and wide in which case you will still have access to space on the garage floor. This garage storage shelving can allow you to hold bins where you keep such things as light bulbs, tools, seasonal clothing and shoes. The entire garage floor space can still be used by your car and other items like scooters, push mowers, bicycles and other things you may deem fit to store in your garage.
This type of garage storage facility is considered an excellent choice by many people because the cabinet can be moved around the garage with relative ease. There may be shelves right inside such cabinets on which smaller items are kept; there may also be hooks for hanging these items. At any time you may have the cabinet moved to another location if you think you'd want another item to occupy the same position without displacing the materials and items you have kept in the cabinet. This type of storage facility will just be easily rolled to a new spot.

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.

Lighting plays an equally important part of French decorating, including the use of chandeliers and traditional French sconce lighting. Using colors, textures, lighting, furniture and some choice accenting accessories, you can give yourself the warm rustic look and feel of French country decor.
When it comes to the basic components of a French country home, keep in mind what creates the warmth and inviting feeling. Many French homes are colored in deep, rich colors and decorated with furniture that is as ornate as a work of art. Combine this with the accents of wonderful French urns, lamps and other accessories to help complete the look and feel of rustic home decor.

Keep in mind is that the fireplace mantle must go well with other architectural elements in the room. Installing a small and relatively plain mantle, when the room includes elements like chair railing or ornate baseboards, might not be a good idea. At the same time, a mantle featuring carved bunches of cherries would look out of place in a contemporary room. Smart thing to do is to go for surrounds that will enhance what you have going on, without causing the room to seem out of balance.
The fact that fireplaces come in many different heights and widths often leads to one of the most common mistakes made when buying a fireplace surround - failure to measure the fireplace in advance. While some people possess the ability to take a good look at a mantel and know whether or not it is the right size, most of us do not possess that gift. You'd save yourself some time and frustration if you measure the fireplace, including the dimensions of the hearth. This will help you to focus on fire place mantels that are the right proportion for your fireplace.
