Scenius Summit 2019: Apiary Book Launch


The Scenius Summit

Our Scenius is growing, and to kick the year off we held our first Scenius Summit where we got together for a weekend in order to see what we came up with without a formal professor guiding the way. We philosophized, played music, made notebooks, and learned a ton from one another. We quickly realized that Scenius Summits needed to become a regular thing.

Book Launch

This will also be the official launch of our first publication. An essay on the relationship we have with our book collections, read and unread. It was written by Bianca Winter and printed by Dylan Smith, both scenius members who have done residencies at OlioHouse. They will speak about their experiences and Bianca will do a reading.  We made a limited run of 25 and everyone in attendance will get a copy of the publication.

No Professor Weekend

What might a weekend look like without any central figure directing us and rather, a collective of our members taking turns guiding our time? We know that creativity abounds in the Scenius and this weekend will allow us to showcase our favorite creative pastimes, teach and learn with each other, and practice the power of community.

Interdisciplinary Learning with the Best Professors


Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
