We create programs for public space that bring New Yorkers together.

You may know us as the Uni Project in NYC…

…or from our work in Boston from 2006-2010.

Street Lab is a nonprofit that creates programs for public space across New York City—pop-up reading rooms, open-air drawing studios, and more. We do this work in order to improve the urban environment, strengthen neighborhoods, and bring New Yorkers together. We also send kits around the world so that other cities can do the same.

Since 2011, we have been known primarily as the Uni Project in New York City. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name of Street Lab, and the name Uni Project will refer to the part of our work focused on reaching at-risk kids in NYC. For now, details about our programs and schedule are available on our Uni Project web site. In the weeks ahead, that content will move to the web site you are visiting now, www.streetlab.org.
