“NYCThe Uni Project launched a one month residency in historic White Park, named for civil rights activist and author, Walter White (1893-1955). We’ll be here four Friday afternoons starting May 19, assisted by students from the Young Women’s Leadership School of East Harlem and Nightingale-Bamford School who are participating in the Youth Advisory Council program of Riley’s Way Foundation. Presented in partnership with the Friends of White Park Alliance and NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, and made possible with funding from Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer and in-kind support from George Mercado, owner of local establishment, Bean Y Vino. Thank you, everyone!

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!
