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
Self-confessed ‘crush-addict’ Isabelle O’Carroll had our audience in fits of laughter discussing her theory on crushes. “Some people say that their crushes are so strong it prevents them from eating or even sleeping! But crushes can be such a powerful motivator making you change your life or a strong comforter in times of depression.”Other highlights during our third quarter included Alex Lambert’s gripping topic on creativity, ideas and technology, Inua Ellams’ insightful talk on mental health issues in men and Sabah Choudrey’s moving story on being a transgendered Muslim.

I spend most of my time getting everyone together, keeping everyone communicating and looking at how 2. everything fits together, big picture. As we’re a team of very busy volunteers who can’t always meet in person, I do my best to make sure everyone knows what’s going on around the team and everyone has lots of support.3. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love exploring little, undiscovered bits of Brixton. Wondering around the little roads and alleys and taking in the sights, sounds and colours.

One of my favourite things to do after a TEDx Brixton meeting is grab some lunch and sit in Windrush Square and watch the world go by.4.

You can look at the same thing from a number of different angles and get a new perspective, each as interesting, unique and beautiful as the last.5. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? As part of my book club (Rebel Book Club in London) I’m reading Doing Good Better by William Macaskill.

One of the shortest, most powerful talks I’ve seen recently is Drew Dudley – Leading with Lollipops. Such a great talk for showing us the impact we can have in the world.7. What’s your highlight from last year’s event? So many highlights, in particular Judy Claybourne’s talk stood out to me as fascinating, touching and eye opening.

With a growing desire for more ethical fashion initiatives, fashion enterprise HustleBucks, co-founded by Samuel Ade Alebioshu, is picking up huge recognition for marrying social good with innovative clothing. “Our ‘hustle’ began in 2009 with a team of young people keen on making a difference through clothing by using it as medium to express ourselves and the issues we felt were relevant,” says Samuel.
the organisation is keen on supporting people between the ages of 16-25 who are not in education or employment and have a passion to learn business and design skills. “Being [based] in Brixton Village has enabled us to provide retail, design and printing lessons to youths in Lambeth. This gives them the opportunity to be at the forefront of the regeneration process which is currently taking place in Brixton.”
