Tell us a bit about your background? I’m a Creative Director at a global PR and integrated communications agency. I get to work across a broad range of industries; from sports to fashion, tech to travel. It’s always different, and there’s always a new challenge, which I love. I also lead the content team for TEDxBrixton.claire (1)What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? Eating and drinking! Without a doubt. We’re spoilt for choice here – so many amazing places. There are too many to list all my recommendations, but some of my favourites are Bukowski, Made of Dough, Mama Lan, and Chicken Liquor. Outside of The Village and Pop Brixton, I also like ThreeEightFour and Effra Social (they do a good pub quiz on a Tuesday).What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me it’s about constant evolution. About retaining beauty, despite an always changing form.What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? Thrive by Arianna Huffington. She wrote the book after collapsing from exhaustion and severely injuring herself. It caused her to dramatically rethink her life, revaluating the choices she was making. Her book is neat summary of this reflection.What’s your favourite TED talk? I love a lot of the iconic talks such as Do Schools Kill Creativity? by Sir Ken Robinson and How I held my breath for 17 minutes by David Blaine. One of my personal favourites is How Sampling Transformed Music by Mark Ronson.

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? My role within the team is Project Coordinator. I help all the teams where necessary on a variety of tasks and have been working on sourcing the merchandise for the event.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love going to Brixton Market at the weekend: having a browse and trying all the different food there, picking up fresh bread from the Sunday Farmer’s market and have particularly enjoyed Pop Brixton this summer, especially the savoury crepes from L’Amuse Bouche!3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me, kaleidoscope means something that is rapidly changing, something vibrant and colourful which is full of energy and continuously creating something beautiful that comes together perfectly.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? I am currently reading I Am Pilgrim, a fantastic thriller entwining the lives of a former intelligence officer and an international terrorist – I can’t put it down and would highly recommend!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? There are so many amazing TED talks that I have enjoyed, but one that stands out to me is Susan Cain’s The Power of Introverts because it really examined the social emphasis on being bold, assertive and outgoing and discusses how we should change our perspective and understand the value of introverts. In our society, I think there is bias thinking that the ideal students and employees are extroverts as opposed to introverts, and I think it is important to shed light on the positive differences between the two and strive for more of a cultural balance between the two.

HustleBucks has a unique focus in that not only does it cater for the socially conscious fashion lover

Meet the team hustling to make social good a wearable fashion

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.

When asked about what advice she’d give to entrepreneurs, she sums it up in three simple points: “work with a great team, believe in what you do and don’t stress!!”

Meet the Brixton inventor who’s creating power from poo!

When Virginia Gardiner came up with the idea of a waterless lavatory that turns waste into energy, she sought to create a product that ??rethinks a basic part of life’ -something she feels we take for granted but should improve. “Toilets are about much more than a product,” she says. “They are about systems, biology, culture, religion – now we have a great team who are all experts in various aspects of this really broad and interesting field.”
