Get Social With Us

Residency Programs

Founded in 2006, KFW’s Summer Residency Program at Hopscotch House has fostered many of Kentucky’s most diverse feminist social change artists and art activists. By supporting individual and collective artistic development with a focus on social impact, the Summer Residency Program has been an important component of the growing and inclusive feminist social change movement in Kentucky.


The Summer Residency Program (SRP) offered participants a week-long immersion in art-making and community building. Feminist social change artists deepened their artistic practice and considered strategies to expand the social change impact of their work.

This year, we are offering our first ever Virtual Summer Residency with Artist-in-Residence Ellen Hagan!

Join writer, performer and educator Ellen Hagan for a week-long residency with a focus on ourselves and the world around us. How do we bloom as writers? What can our artistry and surroundings teach us about identity, discovery, activism, love, place, nature and familyHow can we honor where we come from and imagine where we would like to go in the future?  

Find and discover all the ways you can bloom as writers with generative mindful writing sessions, interactive craft workshops, an introduction to publishing, and goal setting, with individual, small cohort, and community time to meet, culminating in an artist reading and celebration. This week-long intensive workshop invites emerging writers in all genres to join us as we craft new work and build our body of writing. 

*For this residency, “emerging writers” is defined as a writer who does not have a book publication and is not currently in the process of publishing a book.*
