This week, the Uni portable reading room landed at a NYC DOT Weekend Walk hosted by SOS South Bronx and Morrisania. People gathered around to look at ants and other specimens through microscopes and magnifying glasses at a portable science lab that we developed with Harlem-based HYPOTHEkids for their STEAM the Streets initiative. Watch for this new EXPLORE cart during our 2017 season. Uni Project participation made possible in part by funds granted by The Charles H. Revson Foundation.

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!
