That’s what inspired the style of the final piece; you have to really look up close at The Chronicles of Brixton to see what it’s made up of. The question ‘what one thing would you save from a fire?‘ is quite a personal one. The answer can say a lot about a person, and often tell you things about them that you wouldn’t be able to guess. It’s about showing that no matter how we look at a glance, there’s more under the surface. We’re all different, but ultimately the same in the sense that we’re all human with our own stories.
The Chronicles of Brixton is an amazing kaleidoscopic image made up of photos submitted by the general public of what they would save from a fire. The image looks almost like a mandala, and only on closer inspection are you able to recognise the photos of different items that people have sent in.
1. Tell us a bit about your background? I’m TEDxBrixton’s Project Manager. I spend most of my time getting everyone together, keeping everyone communicating and looking at how 2. everything fits together, big picture. As we’re a team of very busy volunteers who can’t always meet in person, I do my best to make sure everyone knows what’s going on around the team and everyone has lots of support.3. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I love exploring little, undiscovered bits of Brixton. Wondering around the little roads and alleys and taking in the sights, sounds and colours. I’m always stumbling upon awesome new spots such as Bookmongers book shop recently, now a firm favourite second hand book shop! One of my favourite things to do after a TEDx Brixton meeting is grab some lunch and sit in Windrush Square and watch the world go by.4. What’s your interpretation of this years’ theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? To me, Kaleidoscope is about changing perceptions. You can look at the same thing from a number of different angles and get a new perspective, each as interesting, unique and beautiful as the last.5. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? As part of my book club (Rebel Book Club in London) I’m reading Doing Good Better by William Macaskill. Only just started it but it promises to be challenging book about making a difference in the world.6. What’s your favourite TED talk? So hard to pick just one! One of the shortest, most powerful talks I’ve seen recently is Drew Dudley – Leading with Lollipops. Such a great talk for showing us the impact we can have in the world.7. What’s your highlight from last year’s event? So many highlights, in particular Judy Claybourne’s talk stood out to me as fascinating, touching and eye opening.TEDxBrixton TEAMS: A roundtable with the talented operations team!

Tiles make excellent flooring for basements, whether they are ceramic, slate or marble. If you go for ceramic tiles you will be delighted with the choice of designs and colors available to you, and the other forms of tiles will certainly enhance any room.
Tiles, however, can get cold in winter time and here you can think of a number of ways of heating the room. Firstly, you can consider just getting rugs in to warm the room up a bit. But underfloor heating in terms of heated floor mats or radiant heating are fantastic options to the think about.

3. Fix outside guttering. Gutters are a huge problem when it comes to basement leaks and erosion. Clearing you're guttering and making sure it pours water away from your home is a crucial step.
Some basements are already equipped with decent ceilings and flooring. If you need to replace both, be sure to check around for price estimates first because these are major expenses. There are many ways to finish a basement ceiling and floor- so keep your mind and options open.
