About the Uni Project:
The Uni Project creates learning environments in public space across New York City. Using custom-designed infrastructure, we pop-up in parks, plazas, and other public spaces to offer reading, drawing, and hands-on experiences for all ages. We partner with community organizations and city agencies, and we prioritize underserved locations. We also send kits around the world so that other cities can copy our model. We do this work to improve the urban environment, strengthen New York City neighborhoods, and make education a visible, enjoyable part of urban life. The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a 501c3 nonprofit.

About the Uni Project at NYC Weekend Walks
We’ve teamed up with NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) so that thousands of New Yorkers can enjoy special programming—pop-up reading rooms, open-air drawing studios, and more—at “Weekend Walks” across New York City. Weekend Walks are events that promote the use of neighborhood streets as public space. Community-based organizations apply to close a street temporarily and then create events that draw people out, highlight local businesses, and encourage neighbors to come together. In 2017, we created a special pop-up reading room for Weekend Walks that included books in multiple languages sourced from museums and independent bookstores in NYC. In 2018, we’ll again offer the reading room in partnership with NYC DOT, as well as new programming options that help community organizations activate public space. Here’s our schedule.

Logistics for NYC DOT Weekend Walk Organizers
The Uni Project works in partnership with NYC DOT to provide programming at select Weekend Walk events in NYC. For these deployments, community hosts should expect our program cart(s), tents, benches to be delivered in advance of the event by NYC DOT. Thanks for your help in securing the gear until our arrival, usually 30 minutes prior to event start time, when we will take responsibility for set-up.
Here’s a photo of a standard delivery of one program cart, two tents, and 10 benches. In some cases there may be two program carts and up to 20 benches will be delivered:
Here’s the same equipment after we set it up:
