An incredible amount of work goes into creating a TEDx experience and TEDxBrixton is no exception. With this years’ theme being so full of colour shape, it was down to our Executive Producer and Stage Designer to visualise and create a kaleidoscopic atmosphere that works seamlessly with the iconic TED brand. From the staging and venue design to the way finding and external branding, every detail was uniquely crafted by this talented team whose knowledge of events and design ensure TEDxBrixton 2015 leaves a lasting and impactful legacy.
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.
In 2008 when Loowatt was birthedMeet 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.”

The good thing about having this pit in your backyard is the variety of purpose it serves - people are always amazed at the fire it produces - the flame to cook your marshmallows and steak, the warmth it brings to the chilly nights and the light it spreads to its surroundings.
Still others may have to hire an experienced contractor who has the expertise to do the job. Just take note that creating pits may pose as a dangerous project. When it is not done right, fire pits can cost a large sum of money for damages. It would be advisable that you entertain several bids to do the project for you. As they compete for your business, in addition to their estimates, designs and ideas including the finish type of materials that they will use. These bids will provide you with more ideas to choose from. Just be careful about some unscrupulous bidders, who would lower the cost of the project just to win your business but they may somehow finish the project below your expectations. Still, others may not finish your stone fire pit at all and you end up hiring another to finish it. The lowest bid may not always be the best value for money.

2. Create your guest list with an RSVP date. Decide if you want just all women, or if children and spouses are included. If you invite couples or families, make sure they tell you how many houses they would like to decorate, because not all couples will want to decorate a house together. This is what makes the guest list important. Start your guest list with a small number of people, and see if it grows. You can always add more people later. Requesting that they RSVP by a certain date is of extreme importance. You need to have enough time to bake all the houses, so the sooner you know how many you need, the better.

Gazebo. Published at Monday, October 08th 2018, 15:00:42 PM by Shelby G.
Make sure you have a fair idea about the size of the gazebo you are going to build. Don't try to fit a huge gazebo into a small piece of land. This will end up making you backyard look crowded and will actually decrease the beauty of the landscape. If availability of land is not a problem, then you should base your decision of size, on the purpose of the gazebo. If you are thinking of holding parties inside the gazebo, it is better to allow as much space as possible. On the other hand, if your gazebo is going to be more private then you may be happier with a smaller size. Make sure you gazebo plans have accurate measurements of all dimensions of the gazebo.
Once you have a clear picture of your requirements you can decide what design and shape of gazebo will be most suitable for you. You also need to make sure what kind of accessories and enhancements you will need inside the gazebo. If you would like to have running water and electricity inside the gazebo, it is better to plan for this right from the beginning.
