Uni Ozone ParkCo-Founders/Directors
The Uni Project is run by husband-and-wife, Sam Davol (Program and Creative Director) and Leslie Davol (Executive Director). The project grew out of their work activating space in downtown Boston during a time they lived there (2006-2011). In Boston, they created Street Lab, a 501c3 nonprofit that launched community-focused and partnership-driven projects, including the now-annual Films at the Gate and Chinatown Storefront Library. Prior, Leslie worked at the New York Historical Society and the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation on memorial, cultural and civic programs following September 11. Sam served as an attorney at the Legal Aid Society, and he is also the cellist in the band The Magnetic Fields. They live in Lower Manhattan with their two children. (Leslie via LinkedIn) (Sam via LinkedIn)
