Andy Tennant


Andy Tennant was a Senior Lecturer at the Design School, teaching across the BA (Hons) Three-dimensional Design and the MA Design programme. He is one of the four founding members of the Design Disruption Group formed around 2009 with Paul Rodgers, Giovanni Innella, and Freddie Yauner. A key motivation for the Design Disruption Group, at this time, was to support care organisations, informal carers and care workers in the North East of England through a series of disruptive design workshops aimed at breaking the cycle of well-formed opinions, mindsets, and ways of doing things that tend to remain unchallenged in health and social care contexts. Since 2009, the Design Disruption Group have individually and collectively produced a series of outputs including international conference and journal papers, book chapters, and secured significant UKRI funding.
