NewCityzens_75Here’s a short video about the Uni Project, featuring interviews with Leslie and our staff. It was filmed in the Bronx and Manhattan by Louise Andrieu and Nils Van Effenterre from New CITYzens, an organization that sends filmmakers around the world. The goal of New CITYzens is to document and mobilize “a global community around the idea of positive cities.” Thanks to Louise and Nils for visiting us this spring from France and sharing the work of the Uni Project.

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!
