Street Without A Name (SWAN) is an organization of concerned volunteers which sponsors collective and collaborative arts projects at the Dome Village and at other locations.

SWAN's mission aims to have a positive effect on the problems of homelessness, the environment, and urban areas through highly visible projects.

Homeless people and youth are engaged in aesthetic projects with the help of volunteer artists and others.
