The Uni Project has been nominated for an award from The Institute for Public Art for our work on the streets of NYC. The Institute also posted a nice summary of our work as well (PDF). Thanks!

Here’s a quote from the nomination:

The Uni Project allows for a platform in public space that doesn’t need to have the overhead of a physical space…the project is creating dramatic change in the neighborhoods it visits by changing the way people think about their own neighborhoods.

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, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
