About Athena Project: Athena Project is a professional group of artists dedicated to supporting and expanding women’s artistic contributions to the Denver stage and the wider community. Athena creates a world where women’s voices are powerfully expressed and recognized for artistic merit in the community.
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 a Read & Rant Series as a book club that celebrates voices of women playwrights; Curating Art for Impact, which authentically connects your brand or mission to stakeholders in a thoughtful and engaging way by showcasing women artists in comedy, visual art, fashion, music, and dance; and Girls Create, a summer intensive highlighting various art forms in a week-long camp culminating in a final performance shared with friends, family, and the public. This program empowers girls to lead and affect change in themselves and others through creative learning.
***At Athena Project, we believe that “women” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “women” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum. We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all women, non-binary, and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
