Contribute to the Book of Debts

Is there something you owe, or are owed, that you would like to draw a line under? A sum of money, an action left undone or a word left unsaid? Or something owed to or by a third party, individual or institution?

You can enter your debt and its story - into the Book of Debts here, now. All contributions are anonymous and you can add as many debts as you like.

The Book of Debts will then be recited and burned, one volume per location, as part of the final performance in each city, in a symbolic act of absolution.

To follow what happens to the Books and their remains, enter your email address when asked and we will invite you to the tour finale in 2015.

I look back and see how I spent so much time trying to keep things organized, clean and done instead of time spent with my children listening, sharing and enjoying the world around us. I regret the time lost that can not be reclaimed

OWED TO debt collector and myself
OWED BY Me, Amy

I owe many things, I owe a relatively small amount of money to some (£4000) but this plagues me, I don't sleep, can barely pay rent. This leads to the emotional debt I have to myself for not trying harder, for not pushing myself, the amount of emotional guilt debt I have is closely linked to the financial debts. Guilt and money, the debt of today Both debt started nearly 10 years ago, I just wanted to party and be young and reckless. This impacted highly on my education and I dropped out of university, twice. I've never been good at paying bills or being responsible. Sometimes it feels a lot like self sabotage. Because I never finished education, I've always had to take jobs way below my capabilities, the pay always sucks, the debt increase, the spiral continuous. I got made redundant in July and its spiraled further out of control both financially and emotionally. I've considered desperate measures to get out of debt and have more money, have not yet actually done these things. I feel guilty for sabotaging myself continuously.

I managed to go to College and further and higher education through the ability to pay the fees. But this was in the '70s recently doing more study I was left with a debt for me .. I worked my way through. But now aged 60+ and retired from teaching its not to be collected any more except through taxes. For my children aged 30 ,25 and 19 its ongoing through their working lives. I worked to aid my studies but at least I was able to earn a living wage. For them its harder, its important to experience the passing on of lifelong learning to enable people to have wider choices. Meet others who can show them different ways of living. and give hope.

I was advised to take endowment mortgage because ‘In the end it will pay for your full mortgage, and pay your lump sum free of tax’ I believed them. Stupid.
