blickThe Uni Project began with books. For several years now, we’ve offered New Yorkers the chance to read at staffed, open-air reading rooms that pop-up across the city in parks, plazas, and other public spaces. That’s still our game, in a big way. But in 2015, we’re adding something new to the mix: drawing.

This Sunday July 12, from 11-1, our new DRAW NYC cart will visit Pier 6 at Brooklyn Bridge Park alongside our familiar reading room cart. We’ll use this opportunity to celebrate a new partnership with Blick Art Materials, which has generously donated high-quality materials to outfit our new drawing program.blick_200

Read. Draw. Together. NYC.

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 Thanks for sticking with us!
