Athena Project is dedicated to

supporting and expanding women's artistic contributions to the Denver stage and the wider community.

Vision: Athena envisions a world where women's voices are powerfully expressed and recognized for artistic merit in the community.

Mission: Athena Project's mission is to empower women and strengthen the Denver community through developing and showcasing women and girls' artistic contributions, while inviting new audiences into the creative process.

Each year, Athena Project produces an Arts Festival, that includes a world premiere play, and our Plays In Progress Series, visual art, fashion, music and dance, Pop Up Performances, and Girls Create, a summer intensive where we highlight various art forms in a week long camp culminating in a final performance to be shared with friends, family, and the public.  This program empowers girls to lead and effect change in themselves and others through creative learning.

Athena Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and contributions to Athena Project are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.


Our Athena Project Arts Festival runs during the month of March each year and includes our world premiere play, Plays In Progress Series, Girls Write performance, visual art, dance, music and fashion.
