Summary: A four-day international meeting/festival for the Pincha Tu Deuda (pop the debt) campaign

Join event

The Pincha tu Deuda project aims to raise awareness and disseminate the origins and causes of debt, inviting citizens to analyze, raise awareness and share its effect on daily life, as well as to acquire tools and organize to demand a transparent and participatory economy.

From Pincha tu Deuda we propose a space to think and debate how debt works and its oppressive mechanisms and how it affects us directly. A space to learn how debt can be managed in a transparent, democratic and participatory way through citizen audits, and how we can avoid paying a debt that we do not consider fair.

In order to generate these spaces for reflection and debate, we have developed a programme with a series of public actions, diverse and open to everyone, which will take place in different parts of the city of Madrid.

The Pincha Tu Deuda Festival is a four-day international meeting between Medialab Prado, the Espacio Vecinal Arganzuela and the Reina Sofía Museum on 21, 22, 23 and 26 November. During these four days there will be a series of open activities, alternating workshops with talks and meetings of festive nature, including people from different organisations and activists from different parts of the world.
