Today, we landed in Chinatown with three of our favorite programs, READ, DRAW, and EXPLORE, at a NYC DOT Weekend Walk, hosted by the Two Bridges Neighborhood Council. Passersby enjoyed a curated collection of books at our pop-up reading room. They drew at our open-air art studio, featuring fine art materials and our artist-in-residence Courtney Menard. Finally, they learned about urban nature at our hands-on science exhibit, featuring Georgia Silvera Seamans of WSP Eco Projects. Participation made possible by NYC DOT. Program made possible citywide in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. See you tomorrow, nearby at Sara D Roosevelt Park in Chinatown!

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!
