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.
TEDxBrixton 2015 may be over but you can still get involved in our Ideas from Europe competition in association with the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills.

Wall Art - If you like to draw, unleash your inner artist and create you own work of art on your walls using a sheet of butcher paper and pastels or simply use some colored chalk and go wild! Since chalk easily washes off most surfaces you can be as creative as you want without damaging your walls.
Bed Risers - Use a set of bed risers or four cement blocks to create extra space for storing luggage, excess clothes, books etc.
