On Friday, May 18, we brushed aside some tricky weather and deployed a portable reading room and EXPLORE science exhibit to a NYC DOT Weekend Walk, hosted by the Rockaway Business Alliance. Part of our approach to working in public space is to show up rain or shine if we can. The show must go on! Librarians from Queens Library set up at a table next to us (birds of a feather!) Thanks to our partners NYC DOT and HYPOTHEkids for joining us.

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 www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
