We’re looking for a few NYC-based volunteers to become part of our team. Help plan the 2012 NYC deployments of our portable reading room called the Uni. The work during the next few months will include researching neighborhoods, forging partnerships, conducting outreach and organizing book drives.

This is a good opportunity for people interested in community development, public space, alternative educational spaces, placemaking, and, of course, books. Contact¬†Leslie Davol with resume attached if you’re interested!

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
