What We Owe

20th – 22nd August, 11am -1pm & 4pm – 5.20pm.

23rd August, 11am – 1pm only.

One-on-one performance

Trapped in a maze of final demands from which you may never escape? Pestered by obligations to friends, family and the television? Cowering under the weight of your debts? What We Owe is the highly unqualified debt counselling service FOR YOU.

We’ll lead you through the journey of what you owe – not just financially, but also emotionally, socially, ecologically, and more. Together we’ll create an absurd (but often effective) Personal Debt Audit, covering everything from the meals you ought to cook your parents to the trees you need to plant, then begin the journey up your personal mountain of debt with a Debt Action Plan. In just 20 minutes, we promise to leave you lighter and happier – or at least with a colour-coded spreadsheet.

Vanquish your debt monsters! Burn your student loan statements! Ignore your friends! In an economy driven by huge financial debts, What We Owe is a tragicomic look at what we mean by debt, and how we might struggle to even begin to cope with it.

    Over the course of 2023 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
