Think Olio is a member-driven community of lifelong learners.

We encourage critical thinking through pop-up lectures, intimate seminars, and salon-style parties with New York's best professors. We've grown entirely by word of mouth and want to welcome everyone to get involved in what we are doing. Let us know if any of the following pique your interest:

Work Study:

Liaisons help us host these special events. They are a group of dedicated members who show up and assist us out at Olios with things like set-up, bartending, and greeting our guests as they arrive. In exchange for their help, liaisons get unlimited Olios and seminars for $10 a month. Apply to liaison here.


We are always looking for new hosts. We've held Olios at coffee shops, art galleries, bookstores, creative agencies, living rooms, and more. Whether you own a business that you think would be a good fit or you've got an apartment that you want to share, reach out and let's talk about hosting Olios. Apply to host here.


We’ve partnered with: Strand Bookstore, Obvious State, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Museum, Mana Contemporary, Chandelier Creative, Nuchas Empanadas, Sixpoint Brewery, etc. etc. If you'd like to curate an event with us, co-host, or support the work we are doing with cross promotion or sponsorship, we'd love to hear from you. Pitch an idea.

Or email us at [email protected] with all your random idea. We can't wait to hear from you!
