TENX9 – “A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words”

  • Black Box 18-22 Hill Street Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT1 2LA United Kingdom (map)


Tenx9 is a storytelling event where nine people have up to ten minutes each to tell a true story from their lives. Begun in Belfast in 2011 by Paul Doran and Pádraig Ó Tuama, this event now takes place in cities across Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, the US and Australia. Every night has a theme, and hundreds of stories can be heard on the podcast:

For this year’s collaboration, we are delighted to have the theme “A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words”. We are looking for nine storytellers. Each storyteller will submit one photo, and a true story from their life about that photo. While details about composition and exposure are interesting, we’re more interested in the human story: what happened just beforehand? why is this photo irreplaceable in your life? Why you hid this photo for years… you get the picture. 

To submit a story, please visit Make sure to read the editorial guidelines on the page first though.
