2013 was a great year for The Uni Project. We completed nearly twice as many deployments as we anticipated, serving readers by the hundreds, and being observed by thousands more in passing.

This has been an extraordinary journey so far, taking us all over New York, meeting people from all walks of life who are drawn to a reading room in public space. Some linger for a few minutes while others stay for hours, but the image they create together is striking: New Yorkers care about reading and learning.

Thank you to our volunteers, partners, and donors. Today, of course, is the last day to make a tax-deductible gift for 2013. You can donate here.

Peace in 2014.

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!
