cart-closed-diagramThe Uni Project is a nonprofit that lets New Yorkers embrace the act of learning in public. Using custom-designed installations, we pop up in parks, plazas, and other public spaces to offer reading, drawing, and hands-on learning experiences. We partner with community-based organizations and city agencies, and we prioritize underserved locations. See our schedule.

We also send kits around the world so others can copy our model. Get a Uni!

We believe that the act of learning is powerful. The Uni puts learning on an urban stage to improve lives, build community, and say something about our priorities as a city.

Being here makes me feel like, I’m reading—I’m a beautiful person.

The Uni is a public space project that transforms each host site, offering visitors a special urban experience—enjoyable, educational, simple, direct, and out-of-the-ordinary. —Betty Chen, NYC Planning Commission
