uni (1)Here at the Uni Project, we create open-air reading rooms in unexpected places. Our public reading rooms shake things up and bring out the best in people and communities. This year, we created 107 staffed reading rooms in New York City: on plazas and sidewalks, in parks, under the 7 Train in Queens, at a hip hop concert in the Bronx. We also built five reading room kits for libraries to use around the world. Slowly but surely, we’re creating a different place to read and learn in cities.

Thank you to our volunteers, partners, and donors. Today, of course, is the last day to make a tax-deductible gift for 2014. You can donate here. We’d love to see your name on our donor wall as it travels around New York. See you on the street in 2015.

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!
