You are invited to join Dr. Bill Thomas for the 2017 ChangingAging Tour in the Pacific Northwest May 1 in Portland. Reserve your tickets now online https://changingaging.org/tour/ or call 607-414-2243.
The Tour features two distinct “non-fiction theater” events: the paradigm shifting Disrupt Dementia and Dr. Thomas’ signature show, Aging: Life’s Most Dangerous Game, both featuring original music, storytelling, poetry and groundbreaking insights on aging and care.
These performances will explore the difference between truth and illusion when it comes to aging. Dr. Thomas’ work provides so many illuminating insights on what our own aging and elders — even those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease — can teach us about the art of aging.

Did you know that every Portland elementary school now has an arts teacher, thanks to the arts tax? Portland Arts Tax revenue restores arts & music to schools and brings the arts to life citywide.
Every Portland resident age 18 and older is expected to pay the tax of $35. But there are exemptions for individuals who are on restricted incomes. Elders in Action
is working with the City of Portland Revenue Division
to identify those people and help them apply for their exemption.
These residents may be exempt for the Arts Tax:
- You are at least 70 years old or permanently disabled AND
- Your household income is below the federal poverty guideline, OR
- Your only income is social security.
Still uncertain if you qualify?
Then call Elders in Action
at 503-235-5474 or email by
clicking here. One of our staff or volunteers will help you determine your status. Do not ignore this tax because penalties can be significant!
