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.

NATURE OF DEBT Financial, Social
OWED TO the rest of us
OWED BY governments and business elites

The world was promised riches, success, and a better life. These were supposed to be our gains for the revolution in ideas that focused on markets and individuals. And yes, world poverty and hunger are down in aggregate. But rising up we experience deep inequality, political disenchantment (and disenfranchisement), and looming environmental catastrophe. It doesn't have to have been this way, and it doesn't have to continue like this. The story of markets and money and debt is a human created story, and we can re-write for the benefit of more than an elite few. We are nothing if not a species of story tellers. It's time for a more inclusive and egalitarian story.

NATURE OF DEBT Financial

I stand today privileged enough to appreciate my life, be aware that money never really will have no value in my life.   However I owe the use of money to helping enable me to live comfortably for example: my couch!   I owe my debt to this in particular the people I think about a lot for gifting me with guidance. I would not be able to have knowledge of what I know without them. Knowing these people. So I feel love life, for gifting me with the privilege of knowing or having valued interactions with these people. thank you life.

NATURE OF DEBT Financial

Every one of us, as unique and intact members of humanity, enters this world, owing nothing to anyone. It is only then, from that very first moment of human life, that the world we have constructed historically, decides any one of us can be a debtor. Just as each and every one of our lives was a gift, we can only honour that gift, by giving to others. We are nothing of ourselves; only hen we share the significant gifts of our living experience, do we then become truly rich, together, everyone of us, bar none
