KFW is partnering with the Sisters of Loretto/Loretto Community to offer Artist Residencies of 1–3 weeks at the Loretto Motherhouse in Nerinx, Ky.
Residencies are open to feminist artists who are residents of Kentucky who have demonstrated achievement in creating work high in artistic merit and based on social justice issues/concerns.
Applications are due October 10 for first-round consideration. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis after that date as space is available.

Retreats at Hopscotch House
Scheduling is now closed for retreats at Hopscotch House in Summer/Fall 2022.
We will update this page when Hopscotch House is accepting applications.
Retreats are open to artists, activists and allies, both individuals and groups, that support KFW’s mission of feminist art for social change.
Note Hopscotch House may be under renovation during some of this time. Internet is not available, and some inside and outside areas may be inaccessible for safety reasons.
The five-bedroom house can accommodate up to 7 people overnight (7 beds, so people would share rooms), or up to 15 people for one day retreats. The Retreat Program is free of cost to artists, activists and allies who live and work in Kentucky and offers stipends for individual retreats for women who face financial challenges that may prohibit them from otherwise attending.
KFW’s Retreat Program offers retreats, free of cost, at Hopscotch House for artists, activists, and allies who live and work in Kentucky and whose goals are to create art, gain a deeper understanding of feminism, and strengthen their understanding of their art and social change goals. The program brings together artists, activists, and allies in a feminist space located on 10 acres of land. Retreats support participants at all stages in their artistic, feminist and social change development.
