The Member-Driven Learning Collective



 
Video by Christiana Lopez


“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.

Think Olio started in a living room with a small group of friends and a professor, but it has grown into a learning collective shaped by the scenius of our community. For that reason, we're very excited to extend a membership opportunity to anyone looking to play a more tangible part in the growth of our organization.

Member Benefits

Committed members will be involved behind the scenes: you'll have a say on upcoming themes, projects, and the overall direction of Think Olio. To this end, we will hold quarterly town halls where we'll meet in-person with members and professors to talk about new ideas and our priorities moving forward. In addition, members get invites to our private events and office (happy) hours with professors.

Your committed membership gives us the funds we need to keep our programming exciting and affordable for everyone.  We're so grateful for your support and please send an email to [email protected] with any questions.

- Chris & David
