Getting women* artists out there for the world to know.
For the world to grow.

Athena Project is the Colorado nonprofit that celebrates and nurtures women’s artistic expression, working actively for equality of opportunity, recognition and pay based on artistic merit alone.

Women account for just 25% of the playwrights produced across the Rocky Mountain Region. Only 5% of music producers are women. Only 30% of major American museums have women directors right now …

Grow the world by changing the future for women in mainstream arts leadership.

*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, trans and gender nonconforming individuals.


2019 Plays In Progress Series

Beginning April 6th

Athena Project is casting roles for its Plays In Progress Series playing the Aurora Fox Arts Center June 1st and 2nd. Our PIP Series includes workshop productions with approximately 25 hours of rehearsal each. There will also be two workshops with limited concert readings (with music stands and approximately 10 hours of rehearsal), and one table reading.


Artists’ Night Out

Thursday, April 4th at 6:30 PM

Meet other local female artists, but instead of TELLING us what kind of artist you are… SHOW us! Bring your dancing shoes, your monologues, your paintings or photographs, or even your guitar and have 1-2 minutes to highlight your work among community supporters and future collaborators.
