Associated Residency Program

Since 2001, KHN has hosted more than 50 working artists each year.

KHN's facilities house up to five residents at a time, generally in the mix of two visual artists, two writers, and one composer. Residency awards are 2 to 8 weeks in length. Each awardee receives a $100 stipend per week, free housing, and a private studio.
