"What if everything we think we know about aging is wrong?"
"For decades, the only dementia story we've heard is one of loss and despair. But there is a new alternative story being told. It is a story of joy and growth. It is a story being told by people living with dementia, for people living with dementia, who want to disrupt the status quo and tell you that they are still here and their lives have meaning."
The Age of Disruption 2016 Tour is a modern day American Chautauqua movement barnstorming the country in a rock n’ roll tour bus to bring communities a new and highly disruptive understanding of aging.
Created by Dr. Bill Thomas, one of the most innovative and creative thinkers working in medicine today, the Tour brings a radical new approach — and conversation — to growth and aging. The 2016 tour features Disrupt Dementia, a community-based workshop, and Dr. Thomas’ signature “non-fiction theater” performance, Life’s Most Dangerous Game, featuring the unconventional pairing of a physician (Dr. Thomas) and a musician, Nate Silas Richardson.
Join SCMA & Dr. Bill Thomas and crew for a day of education, entertainment and inspiration.
