Co Create

Henry Collingham

Innovation Fellow
I’m an innovation fellow in Design and Creative Technology 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.
