Dr Henry Collingham
I’m an innovation fellow at Centre for Digital Citizens based in Northumbria University’s school of design. 
Principally, I work with people with dementia, with a focus on hearing and amplifying some of the quietest voices in our community through design. I am interested in supporting communities and exploring citizenship through acts of creativity. I get to work in partnership with a number of community organisations through the CDC, you can find out about my projects with them on The Ageless Citizen.
I studied product design at Edinburgh College of Art, with an exchange to IKDC in Sweden. After art school I worked at Mike Stoane, Soluis Studio, and Cinimod Studio before moving into design research.
If you’d like to chat about getting an idea off the ground, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
