The Member-Driven Learning Collective


Membership Choices



 
Video by Christiana Lopez


Think Olio membership is open to anyone looking to join our community of over 200 good-humored, lifelong learners who get together often for Olios, field trips, learning clubs, show and tells, and the occasional dance party.

We started in a living room with a small group of friends and a professor but have grown into a learning collective that has been shaped by the scenius of our community.

“Scenius stands for the intelligence and the intuition of a whole cultural scene. It is the communal form of the concept of the genius.” 

Though as a concept this has always been something we've loved and casually acknowledged, it wasn't until recently that we came across the idea of scenius and realized that Brian Eno had coined the perfect term to describe our community. 

If Friday night lectures, museum field trips, and living room salons sound like your kind of thing, then you've found your people. We can't wait to welcome you to the Think Olio Scenius. 

-Chris & David


All Scenius members get:

  • Access to Scenius Clubs
  • Invites to parties and private events
  • A voice at our community town halls
  • 25% off Olios, OlioHouse, and multi-part Seminars


We like to think about Olios as anti-algorithm. We’re not trying to pinpoint what you’re already into and give you more of it. Instead, we’re hoping to introduce you to something you never imagined caring about, or better yet, something you never even considered. Becoming a Scenius member means you're curious and open to new lenses and you embrace the chance that on any given night, at any random Olio, your worldview could change.
