Uni at IdeasCity New York (Manhattan)

September 16, 2017, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Come find the Uni at IdeasCity New York (http://www.ideas-city.org), a daylong festival exploring “100 Actions for the Future City,” organized by the New Museum in Sara D. Roosevelt Park. Using three of our carts, we’ll pop-up to enhance and support the focus of the event, which will feature artist talks, initiatives by local organizations, performances, workshops, and a panel of notable mayors from around the country. A special drawing station, created in partnership with The Drawing Center, will help bring drawing to the forefront of the actions being discussed. Uni participation is made possible in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

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!
