Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
KHN Center for the Arts is a renowned Artist Residency program that supports established and emerging visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from around the world.
KHN gives special consideration for emerging artists by reserving a number of “transitional” residencies for recent masters degree graduates (within two years of application deadline). The application process is the same for all applicants, however applications from artists in transition following graduation from an accredited masters degree program receive special consideration.
KHN also gives special consideration for Nebraska artists by ensuring that a number of residencies are awarded to Nebraska artists each year. The application process is the same for all applicants, however applications from Nebraska artists receive special consideration. At KHN, we define Nebraska artist as those who currently live and work in the state, grew up in Nebraska, or received a diploma from a Nebraska university or college.
