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.
We chose the theme because we believe this embodies what Brixton really is. We don’t believe in melting pots, we believe in salad bowls, mosaics and kaleidoscopes – things that allow individual elements to be part of a whole.
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.

This type of garage storage facility is considered an excellent choice by many people because the cabinet can be moved around the garage with relative ease. There may be shelves right inside such cabinets on which smaller items are kept; there may also be hooks for hanging these items. At any time you may have the cabinet moved to another location if you think you'd want another item to occupy the same position without displacing the materials and items you have kept in the cabinet. This type of storage facility will just be easily rolled to a new spot.Garage Shelving Ideas You Can Use Today

All of those keepsakes that you have accumulated over the years can find a new home. This will be very therapeutic for you. There's no need to move boxes from one place to another, as we all seem to do when we move from house to house. Open each box up and realize that you can do without what's stored inside.
Painting may be your best garage floor idea and this will require some additional preparation. All the cracks that have appeared due to subsidence over the years will have to be fixed first. Also you should put adhesive on the surface before you begin to paint, as this is likely to produce a better final result.

The next step is considering the design of the accent piece. For large brick fireplaces chunky wooden mantels work very well, while for a small fireplace in a bedroom something more demure will be appropriate. You will also need to decide if you want scrollwork or other elements included in the overall design, or if clean and simple lines are a better choice.

A focal point can be anything from the front door itself, a beautiful wreath on your front door or perhaps a wicker table, chairs, and colorful table cloth. Or, it could be beautiful hanging baskets, a work of art (painting or sculpture), or perhaps a favorite rocker or swing. Above all, make sure your "focal point" is obvious and it should be a great conversation starter.
