nycparks copyWe brought the Uni to Playground 103 in East Harlem yesterday to begin a short series designed to reach kids and families, especially those living nearby at NYCHA East River Houses. Our work here is in partnership with NYC Parks in support of the Community Parks Initiative, an effort to invest in neighborhood parks with the greatest needs. We’ll be here on Thursdays, and you can see all of our CPI deployments here. Thanks to Leaves of Grass Fund for supporting our deployments in parks across the city.

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 600 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!
