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.
some for the first time and some regular TEDxBrixton fans who shared positive feedback about the event and revealed their own thoughts on the theme Kaleidoscopes.
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.TEDXBRIXTON TEAMS: The guys behind the finance
We wouldn’t be able to put on such an incredible event if it wasn’t for the help of our sponsorship team. These guys boast a unique ability for sourcing the most suitable supporters to raise the profile of TEDxBrixton. Due to their strong experience in fundraising, they create and manage the budget, raise money from sponsors and oversee our partnerships program and live streaming venues. Their work is vital to our success and development.

This autumn, the designs are focusing more on traditionalism. The most popular arrangements feature dried florals in contrasting colors. This makes the design an instant focal point, perfect for front doors as the color contrast draws your eye even from the street or sidewalk. For those that dislike silk florals, dried arrangements are a way to cut the cost compared to fresh arrangements and can last for years with special care.

How to Use Garage Shelves
This is one of the types of garage shelving arrangements used in many places where there is not much space even for a car. There's the advantage of taking your shelving high and wide in which case you will still have access to space on the garage floor. This garage storage shelving can allow you to hold bins where you keep such things as light bulbs, tools, seasonal clothing and shoes. The entire garage floor space can still be used by your car and other items like scooters, push mowers, bicycles and other things you may deem fit to store in your garage.
Gazebo. Published at Monday, October 08th 2018, 15:00:42 PM by Shelby G.
It is crucial that the land on which you are planning to build the gazebo is exactly level. If this is not the case, then make the ground level by using concrete and dirt. You can also build a deck to give the gazebo a more solid base. Discuss the foundation depths with you local building authorities before beginning construction to avoid problems later.
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.

While you're out shopping to move into your room, consider splurging on comfortable seating with lots of cushions. Nothing helps the atmosphere in a sterile dorm room like comfort and softness.
A great way to have a strange room turn friendly and inviting would be to bring in a few plants. Not only will plants help you keep your indoor air quality up recycling the carbon dioxide, they will make everything look fresh and friendly too. Of course, you'll have to be sure that you water your plants properly and that you pick the right kind of plants for the level of sunlight they can get. You will have to also remember that when you go home for a vacation, you'll have to arrange for someone to take care of you plant watering at the right times.
