We are delighted to be back at Greenbelt. 


There will be two Tenx9 events at Greenbelt 2018.  The themes are Kindness and Courage.


Tenx9 is a storytelling event where nine people have up to ten minutes each to tell a true story from their lives. While we appreciate traditional storytelling, and reflections, Tenx9 is an event where we only accept submissions telling a true story from your own life. 

Tenx9 is a storytelling sensation, where 9 people have up to 10 minutes each to tell a true story from their lives. The themes for Tenx9 at Greenbelt this year are 1/ Kindness and 2/ Courage. If you have a true story from your own life on one of these themes, send in a submission below and we'll be delighted to hear from you!

No sermonising, no essays, no reflections on the human condition. Just a true story from your own life. We can make the meaning, you just drop us into the drama of the story. So that time when you turned to your Auntie Myrtle in the car when you were driving 70 miles an hour and took a courageous risk — we want to hear about it. 

Tenx9 was started in 2011 by Pádraig Ó Tuama & Paul Doran and since has spread to 14 different cities around the world. Early on, Tenx9 was supported by a very generous grant from Trust Greenbelt, for which we remain deliciously grateful. 


Thank you! We look forward to seeing you at that gorgeous place of goodness: Greenbelt.
