Olios: Drop-in classes led by professors
This year has felt like living through a shaken world of ideas. But as the dust starts to settle, we know for certain that community and art get us through tough times.
We couldn’t be more excited to lean into the Think Olio community and find meaning together through a day of myth and story. We believe that amidst the external chaos, Myth, not as falsehood but as a world of inner order can help us create the community, meaning and support for which we all toil.
We’ll be gathering old and new Olio greats for a day-long festival in a historic Clinton Hill Mansion using the theme of myth to guide the way.
Our teachers will explore stories of Economics, Geography, and the Body before we go into the nighttime hours with a dance party. All of the programming will take place outdoors and there will be a cash bar on-site with a snack break to explore the great restaurants in the neighborhood.
Tickets are available at sliding scale pricing and any extra support you can give will go towards ramping back up our programming in the city coming out of this pandemic. We’ll be bringing on new teachers, new venues, and seeking out new opportunities to explore NYC through the Olio lens.
