"Scenius membership was a no-brainer for me: far and away the most interesting people I've met in New York I've done so at an Olio; the monthly subscription feels like a great investment.

"As a Think Olio member, I don't just hold out my hands and receive a host of (great) benefits: I turn up, I listen, I counter, I question, I connect and I grow. I bring myself to the Scenius because I believe that learning rooted in human exchange is the kind of learning that shapes lives."

- Scenius Member, Bianca Winter

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.

Cancel Culture

Just like #MeToo, many movements have demanded greater accountability from public figures; leading to public humiliations, and have led to a source of great debate over the intricacies of internet ethics. Can free speech go too far and be weaponized? Or is free speech precisely the thing targeted by cancel culture?
