Changing Aging Tour: Disrupt Dementia
June 12, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Our culture tells us that aging will change us against our will, and for the worse. Dr. Bill Thomas, a graduate of Harvard Medical School and an international authority on geriatric medicine and eldercare, argues that this is false. Blending myth and science, live music and visuals, Dr. Thomas’ ChangingAging Tour is barnstorming the country in a rock and roll tour bus to bring communities a new understanding of aging. Drawing on ancient wisdom and scientific breakthroughs, the ChangingAging Tour challenges audience members to reject ageist stereotypes and embrace the moments of life that offer the greatest risk, reward and possibility.
“Disrupt Dementia” features music and stories from Samite, Nate Silas Richardson and Namarah McCall and co-hosts Dr. Jennifer Carson and Kyrié Carpenter. This immersive and transformational non-fiction theater experience weaves film, music and first-person stories with groundbreaking research turning convention on its head by focusing on what we can all learn from people living with dementia, rather than from experts.
A panel discussion will follow the performance, as will vendor displays, light refreshments, and tours of the Sosin Center for those interested.
