whedco_200x100One way to build community in the city is to shut down a street and give people good things to do. On June 13 in the Bronx, the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation created a Weekend Walk that did just that. The Uni Project joined in, creating an open-air reading room right alongside a hip hop concert presented Bronx Music Heritage Center. We also opened up our new DRAW NYC cart to offer residents a chance to draw together in the middle of Louis Niñé Boulevard.  The Uni has been on this block in 2013 and 2014. Thanks all—see you in 2016!

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!
