WATERVILLE — PechaKucha Night Waterville Volume 23 is set for 7:20 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, in the Spann Student Center at Thomas College. A reception is set for 6:20-7:15 p.m.

Held in collaboration with the Camden Conference and Mid-Maine Global Forum, the event will feature several presentations broadly associated with a refugees and global migration theme — including a presentation focused on helping others in times of helplessness, a very timely presentation indeed, according to a news release from Nate Towne, Waterville Creates! Marketing manager.

The presenters will be Helene Farrar, Khristopher Flack, Dwight Gagnon, Kevin James, Dean Lachance, Argy Nestor & Lindsay Pinchbeck, Rachel Prestigiacomo, and Lyn Rowden. The event will feature a wide variety of stories including our attachment to our material possessions, healing hunger, and a different sort of colony — Puffins colonies to be precise. Joan Sanzenbacher will be the emcee.

The free events are Waterville’s connection to a global storytelling network of creative people sharing their creative muse in 20×20 (20 images showing for 20 seconds each).
