Uni 2.0 wheels up, headed abroad.

A new Uni is en route to Almaty, Kazakhstan via air cargo. This Uni will be used to create a roving, outdoor reading room in Almaty’s parks and plazas through a collaboration between the U.S. Embassy in Almaty and a local children’s library. Thank you...

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!
