The Uni Project is a nonprofit that creates learning environments in public space across New York City. Using custom-designed installations, we pop up in parks, plazas, and other public spaces to offer reading, drawing, and hands-on experiences for all ages. We partner with community organizations and city agencies, and we prioritize underserved locations. We also send kits around the world so others can copy our model. Get a Uni!
