On a summer evening in the Bronx, the Uni Project made a place for books and learning at a community hip hop concert and dance party.

The concert honored Bronx living legend/hip hop founding father, DJ Kool Herc, and later in the evening Kool Herc himself took over the turntables and created a Jamaican Jam dance party. The event was sponsored by the been on this block, back in 2013.

Our participation was made possible in part by support from Penguin Random House.WHEDco logoPenguin Random House Companybmhc

About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project—a portable reading room for public space. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all of our work together going forward, with much more to come.
