1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m the partnerships manager, which means I look after our relationships with local businesses and sponsors.2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I’ve lived her for a while now and this answer changes weekly, but at the moment I love hot yoga classes at Fierce Grace, after which I stagger down the road to Lucy’ Juices for a pick me up. As I expect most people who live here say, Brixton Market is a favourite spot – Fish Wings and Tings is an institution and Dave from Market Row wines will always find you a great bottle. Oh, and Three Eight Four on Coldharbour Lane does the best cocktails I can find.3. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? I’ve been working with a lot of local businesses this year and the theme has been very meaningful for a lot of people, as it represents the mash-up of old and new that Brixton is currently experiencing.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? A few! Currently switching, depending on my mood, between Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth (he has a great TED talk by the way) and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is a favourite of my dad’s, so he’s chuffed I am finally reading it.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? An all time great and one that I always pass on to others is Jackson Katz – Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Heavy title I know, but just a genius argument and one that never fails to spark debate.

Live tweets and updates being shared on the day included quotes from some of our most inspiring speakers -like Robyn Parker, Helen Wright and Hugh Lewis, Pete Bearder and Charlotte Knowles:We were treated to incredible performances from Lil Trubz, Brandon Bennet and The Voice UK finalist Brixton’s very own Lara Lee “TEDxBrixton to me is about people coming together sharing ideas and it’s about the energy of the area. Brixton has always had a massive energy in terms of creativity and the point of having an event like this is to improve as a community,” explained Lara.

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.

Of her experience setting up shop in Brixton, she was surprisingly met with very little challenges and says the South London residency still offers a very ??neighbouring feeling’. “Brixton is a great place to set up an office and we recommend it to all our friends. We also love bringing people to visit our workshops and conferences.”

And though the company is still in its infancy, Loowatt boasts huge potential to bring in more business in to the area creating even more diversity and variety to the synthesis of Brixton. “I’m pretty sure we’re the only waterless toilet company in Brixton. As we grow as a company, we’d like to continue bringing people and jobs into the area, and finding ways to collaborate and share ideas with other local businesses,” she concludes.
