Today, the Uni Project wrapped up a month-long residency at Marcus Garvey Park where we created a special pop-up reading room curated for Harlem. This reading room featured a collection of brand-new books awarded to the Uni Project as the recipient of a 2018 Coretta Scott King Book Awards Book Donation Grant. Our community host partner was the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance, which we joined for their weekly Reading Circle on the grass nearby. (The Alliance also shares thousands of books each year in the park via several “Little Free Libraries”). Thanks also to New York City Department of Parks and Recreation for helping to make this residency possible.

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!
