Toby P Lloyd is an artist and researcher based in Newcastle upon Tyne. His work is primarily socially engaged, creating projects that involve performance, moving image and installation.

Lloyd recently completed a practice-based PhD in the Fine Art department at Newcastle University which explored the potential of participatory arts practice to challenge complex societal issues and imagine alternative futures. Alongside this research he has been campaigning for Universal Basic Income and is the co-founder of UBI Lab Arts.

He works collaboratively with Andrew Wilson as Lloyd & Wilson. Their work borrows the architecture of the public house to create environments that encourage others to communicate with one another.

Outside of making art he enjoys drinking real ale and listening to music. His favourite band is The Fall.
