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.

DEBT NUMBER fabrica 041
NATURE OF DEBT Emotional, Financial

Sister : £6,000. She is brilliant and rescued me financially when I really needed it. Credit card: £3,000. Don't feel so bad about credit card. That's the trouble with credit on cards from banks. - it doesn't feel real. Father -in-law : £3,000 but he doesn't see his granddaughter or seem to care about his son -my husband. So I don't mind.

She threw my favourite sunglasses into the sea as a 'joke'. Not cool

NATURE OF DEBT Emotional, Social, Spiritual

Recognising that all of us growing up really need help connecting with who we are inside, what patterns we are part of or suffer from, how we need the insight in order to be more conscious, free. Instead we may take years in our loves before we can truly connect, with our inner self, and others around us in meaningful ways. I want to see that redressed in our upbringings, and for it to be acknowledged better in the mainstream.

NATURE OF DEBT Financial
OWED TO RBS, mortgage company, mother
OWED BY Fritha

I have never been an organised or wealthy person and am in somewhat of a vicious cycle of feeling panicy about paperwork but needing to sort it out. I tend to just throw myself into work which sorts out the debt as I freelance. I need to overcome phobias and be responsible and calm about it. My grandmother used to give me huge sums of money at an early age which I used to spend immediately and hide from my parents as they would take it away from me. I have always felt out of control about money. I was never taught to manage it and have always veered between being wealthy and poor. I have a plan.

I owe a glad debt of unconditional love to my mother, whom I miss everyday. Without her strength and vision I would not have survived in this world.

OWED TO Grandmother
OWED BY Granddaughter

20 years old, single, living in an B+B, my maternal grandmother offered me her spare bedroom for me to live in. I was pregnant. I gave birth in the local hospital. Her house was my sons first home. We stayed until we were ready to move on. I will make sure I make my gratitude explicitly clear before it's too late. I now have a grandchild of my own. 5 generations.
