SUPPORT THE IAO
Team – The Institute for Art and Olfaction

The IAO is run on a daily basis by the founder and director Saskia Wilson-Brown. Additional assistance comes from educator Ashley Eden Kessler, creative director Micah Hahn, as well as the Smelly Vials Perfume Club – an IAO-based collective involved in many aspects of the organization’s programming and events.

We also have a rotating team of friends and volunteers who pop in to help, when needed.
