We are Helen and Maya, the founders of Featured in Fifteen. We wanted to create a community arts project that celebrated the FFabulous rich mix of real people with an inspirational story to share in 15 minutes.This podcast in a mixture of FFeatures past and FFuture sharing conversation with us on different themes that form part of life. We will also share some of the live event we host in to give you a taste of what the live event is like.The FF event concept was born around the FFeeling we needed to create a space for positivity and empowerment of our community. We sat and thrashed out ideas around 'What would be our perfect night out?' the answer was - an evening of interesting talks from various local curators, a drink with friends and somewhere we didn't have to travel the earth for. We both have a genuine respect for TED talks and so the idea of providing an audience with more than one speaker (with a drink in hand) in a considered time frame (15 minutes) felt like an interesting challenge for us...so that's when Featured in Fifteen came to life..

    Featured15 - Episode 8 with Thales

    Featured15 - Episode 8 with Thales

    This Episode is a little bit different we recorded this on the 2nd of June 2020

     We talk honestly and openly, with our FFeature FFriend Thales it deals with the events surrounding the murder of George Floyd and the subsequent protests. We share openly how this has affected us all in different ways and how now more than ever we need to have those uncomfortable conversations to diminish inherent racism where we no longer ignore these deep and destructive systemic issues. Indifference is the biggest weapon between us. Here are some resources to educate yourself and others https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/#educate
    Like always we cover this in a very real and raw capacity, we are still in the pandemic so this recording was made while we all remain in lockdown and in our separate homes.

    Featured15 - FFeel Good with Wayne Perrey The TV Carpenter

    FFeel Good podcast with the FFantastic Wayne Perrey The TV Carpenter, Wayne spent most of his career in theatre and if you’ve been to a past FF event you will have heard how fantastic his voice is and how awesome he is with an audience. With a passion for DIY he decided to make the brave steps of turning his hand (pardon the pun) to what he loves most - being his own curator of all things carpentry to encourage more people to do their DIY with confidence. From setting up the DIY Doers with Steph Bron creating e-books and online courses he has since set up his TV Carpenter Podcast, he gets to interview the well known faces of our interior TV shows to include interior designers and gardeners to inspire listeners to create their own dream home. Wayne shares with us his journey from handing over the mic for a hammer and how he’s never looked back on his path to his passion.
