Today DRAW NYC landed at street festival—a NYC DOT Weekend Walk—hosted by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. Participation made possible by NYC DOT with support from Blick Art Materials. We set up next to staff from the local Blick store on Myrtle St. and we featured some drawing prompts created by The Drawing Center. DRAW NYC is made possible citywide in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Thanks also to Lisa Brown and Daniel Handler. As always, our work on the street is also supported by our individual donors who generously contribute amounts small and large to make this happen on the street.

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!
