Life ReimaginedSM, an idea from AARP, was introduced at the 2012 Life@50+ event in New Orleans. Attendees lined up at iPad kiosks to take a journey of self-discovery through Calling Cards, an inventive way to reflect on your natural gifts and talents, and Unstuck, a digital approach to personal growth. Sharing stories in the Life Reimagined video booth and expressing dreams on the 60-foot by 11-foot "Lives Reimagined" illustration wall, attendees explored “what’s next” and inspired others with their ideas for reimagining their lives.
