KFW Announces New Residency Opportunity



KFW is partnering with the Sisters of Loretto to offer Artist Residencies of 1-3 weeks in June, July and August 2022 at the Loretto Motherhouse in Nerinx, KY.


Residencies are for literary and visual artists who have demonstrated achievement in creating work high in artistic merit and based on social justice issues/concerns. Residencies are open to feminist artists who are residents of Kentucky.


Resident will be provided with housing and the option of studio space, which includes the use of an art studio, tools and equipment. (Resident must already know how to use the equipment, no on-site training will be provided.)




The 2022 Loretto Residency program is open to feminist social change artists and writers who reside in Kentucky. Writers with varied backgrounds, worldviews, cultural heritages, and sexual orientations are encouraged to apply. KFW is committed to making the residency program accessible to a wide range of women regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, educational level, economic condition, or geographic origin.
