The Uni Project has been nominated for an award from The Institute for Public Art for our work on the streets of NYC. The Institute also posted a nice summary of our work as well (PDF). Thanks!

Here’s a quote from the nomination:

The Uni Project allows for a platform in public space that doesn’t need to have the overhead of a physical space…the project is creating dramatic change in the neighborhoods it visits by changing the way people think about their own neighborhoods.

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!
