Andie Lloyd is a queer interdisciplinary artist, lighting designer, projection designer, visual artist, and production stage manager born and raised as a settler of Irish/Welsh heritage on the ancestral homelands of the Qayqayt Nation, New Westminster.
Andie's current practice is centered around data collection and distribution as a form of feminist media art. She studied Theatrical Design at Studio 58, Langara College and graduated in Fall 2017 (Diploma, Theatre Arts).
Andie is now exploring her interests in new media and projection design using real-time software Isadora, under the mentorship of Sammy Chien, as a member of Chimerik 似不像 Collective.
Through her art, Andie seeks to explore politics, environmental justice and marginalisation in an international context, through frequent travel, education of her community through active campaign work with the NDP, and lifting up youth and adults in marginalised communities by attending events, hosting and supporting fundraisers, and participating in community action. Andie seeks to use her artistic practice to educate and inspire people to live radical, unapologetic lives by lifting others up and pushing for positive change.
Some of Andie's recent involvement includes: MINE, Theatre Replacement, HAKO, Ouro Collective, Amélie, West Moon Theatre, The Great Leap, Arts Club Theatre Company, Flow(er), by Sammy Chien & Dong Mei Dance, Telepresence, by Nancy Lee & Kiran Bhumber, and the Jessie Award Winning Production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, by Snapshots Collective. Andie's current solo project is a mixed media storytelling piece entitled Sleep Here Tonight 今天睡在這裡, and has been presented at Way Off Broadway Wednesdays and TAIWANFest.
Andie is a graduate of New Westminster Secondary School, is the founder of Defy Don't Gentrify (@defydontgentrify) and sits on the board for the Festival of Recorded Movement.
