Check back soon to view the DebtBank's open source archive and video diaries. 

DebtBank is a surreal bilingual (Spanish/English) resource desk that sets up shop in various community venues, like museums and libraries, in order to provide a space where the public can ask a question or answer a neighbor’s query about debt. Through participatory written prompts and video diaries that spark dialogue and collects research, the project aims to: (a) visualize debt as a shared phenomena while illuminating all of our experiences with debt; (b) provoke individual understandings of debt and autonomy while searching for creative solutions; (c) foster alternative forms of crowd-sourced resource-sharing about economic equity.
