General Interest is a series of lectures inviting Manchester practitioners to invite someone they like to give a talk on something they like. If the nominated speaker was unable to talk, it was then requested that they nominate another speaker; someone they like.
The talks will be held at the Soup Kitchen, Manchester on the last Tuesday of each month from January through to August 2011. The talks are free to enter and wholly inclusive encouraging interaction and discussion. Each event will be accompanied by a publication, filmed and archived online.
General Interest was started by Matthew Walkerdine and Jessica Higgins who then invited Comfortable on a Tightrope, Craig Oldham, Good Grief!, Hot Bed Press, Islington Mill Art Academy and Salford Zine Library to participate.

Since completing a degree in 2001 Ba (Hons) Print Media Book Arts & Craft, I have been making and exhibiting artists' books and prints, my work is held in private and public collections. I make books and prints about the everyday world around me; the everyday that stops me, makes me wonder and take the time to stand and stare. I want the reader of my work to feel that indefinable 'lifting' of the spirit too.
