Bristow & Lloyd is a collaborative arts project that playfully encourages people to come together to think, laugh, discuss, or share in some small way. Initiated in 2009 between community worker Lisa Bristow and visual artist and lecturer Christian Lloyd, they have used written and spoken word, typography and zines to explore how we govern our domestic spaces, amateur local history, and self-help guides, amongst other topics.
