What is Tenx9 Nashville Storytelling?
Tenx9 Nashville is a Belfast-originated monthly community storytelling night in Nashville, Tennessee where 9 people have up to ten minutes each to tell a real story from their lives.
Every month has a theme, and every event is free.

I get the same feeling gong to Tenx9 that I get going to TEDx. A brief and delightful oasis where honest thoughts and experiences are expressed as we sit back and enjoy.
I come to Tenx9 because the power of storytelling is the power to heal, to grow, to change our world. This is what community looks like.
I come to Tenx9 to find community through great, vulnerable stories. The courage it takes for folks to get on stage and share real things from their lives helps me to feel braver and empowered to face my own story.
I come to hear great stories, laugh a little, think a little, and find occasional inspiration. But I stick around to enjoy the understory. It’s like an unexpected dessert after an indulgent nine-course meal.
Tenx9 Nashville reminds me it’s a privilege, not a curse, to be human, to live this messy beautiful painful grace-filled life. Thank you.
