At Tenx9 we have been delighted to be part of an ongoing project with the NI Prison Service. Working in conjunction with the Mental Health services, the Governor and inmates, we have held storytelling seminars and Tenx9 events across a few sites. And we were delighted when NIPS featured a short video about us last week.
Well, we laughed, we listened, we wept, we clapped and clapped and clapped. What a night of Never Again stories at Tenx9. Thank you to all.
Well, we had a delicious night tonight. Thank you to everyone who came, and everyone who told and everyone who listened. Over half of our storytellers tonight were new - and we were delighted. We heard stories of a Macgyver lookalike who rescued a lost boy; shoplifting from Easons'; quick love, and deep loving; missing home from North Carolina; photos taken on awful days at work; taking the revolution to China; adventures in Réunion *teaching*; and instagram photographs that led to marriage.
You can't stay young, but you can stay immature. That's what we heard tonight from the fantastic folks telling at Tenx9.
