Disrupting Carers

Andy Tennant and Paul Rodgers have run a few Design Disruption Workshops for carers based in the North East of England. The intention behind these half day sessions is for participants (in this case, carers) to have fun, relax, and do things in ways that they wouldn’t normally do them. It’s an opportunity for the participants to try new things out in a relaxed, stress-free environment.The Disruptive Design Workshops are aimed at breaking the cycle of well-formed opinions, mindsets, and ways of doing things that tend to remain unchallenged; providing possibilities for developing richer, more varied solutions and possibilities to everyday issues. Each workshop involves a number of creative design activities such as drawing from memory, sketching everyday observations, 2D/3D modeling, and problem-solving challenges.
