•    How can older adults travel in style and class?
•    How can we make traveling more efficient, less expensive and more accessible?
•    How can we encourage older adults to continue exploring the world and decrease isolation?

Open Source Age of Disruption Tour @ United States Tour
Oct 5 – Nov 6 all-day

Each Tour stop will feature a live performance by Dr. Thomas called “Life’s Most Dangerous Game.” The mixed-media performance begins with a light-hearted look at just how “crazy” our culture’s perspective on normal human aging can be and then asks: “What if?” What if we all lived in a world that saw aging not as a process of decline but rather as the entree to life’s most dangerous game?
