Events TEDxBrixton Speakers2015 The big day: Our favourite moments!

Published at Thursday, October 01st 2015, 15:03:39 PM by Shelby G. Events.

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

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.

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.

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.

Samuel and the team are passionate about helping their community hope to leave a legacy in Brixton that would help advance other youth-led brands. “My advice to local business owners is to think big and plan for success. Focus on your value proposition. Leverage your network; connect with a brand strategist and leaders in your field that can analyse your business and help you scale it to the next level.”

Following the success of the Pop-Up Shop in March, the team were invited back on a permanent basis from October 2010 and currently offering the opportunity for aspiring fashion designers to retail their own products in the HustleBucks shop.

It’s my home. I’ve only lived here about three years but feel pretty rooted, more so than most other places I’ve lived. Before I lived here I worked in local mental health services and got to know a lot of people through the work I was doing. I’m a really curious person and love hearing people’s stories. Listening to people tell their stories is a really powerful way of being able to connect with them and I wanted to get to know some more of the people that I live amongst. In my mind, Brixton’s always been a place that’s welcomed people to come and set up home (something I think is changing and becoming too exclusive) and I think that possible leads people to be quite open, and provides a real mixture of stories. That’s not to say that the same wouldn’t be true of other places.

I wrote a blog post about the artist, Jeremiah Drake, who created the image and let’s just say that lead on to some really cool stuff happening which had a really big impact on me. You’ll have to tune into the full story to find out more!
