PiotrTEDxBrixton TEAMS: A roundtable with the talented operations team!
We have a committed facilities team who are responsible for the management of services and processes that support all of TEDxBrixton’s departments. It’s a wide field with a diverse range of responsibilities which can only be fulfilled by a team who are reliable, highly organised, efficient and astute in the planning and daily operations of running an organisation. Meet Rima, Lauren and Piotr.
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.
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.

How will you use your porch the most? Will it be a gathering place for relaxing in the evening? Perhaps you want a place to listen to music or share an intimate glass of wine? Will you be entertaining on your porch? Do you want to create a private nook for reading or writing? Knowing how you will use your porch will help you select the right furniture and accessories.
You can do an amazing decorating job just by using color. Don't be afraid to use color. Not good with decorating color schemes? Neither am I; however I can pick out at least one color I like. So how do you choose a color? Browse through decorating books, visit a department store home furnishings department or go to your paint store and pick out some paint strips that you like. Paint strips give you great ideas of complementary colors, too!

In the olden medieval days, the fireplace mantel also known as chimneypiece, was originally meant to catch the smoke from the hearth or fireplace. Eventually, it evolved into an art form, and sometimes elaborate mantels (which would extend even to the ceiling) became the focal point of a room. Over the years, as modern heating technologies, people didn't need fireplaces anymore and they became purely ornamental. It is essential then, for any fireplace because now they are just for designs.
