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.

Artists’ Night Out

Thursday, January 18th

Come out for an evening with local artists. But, instead of TELLING us about your art… 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.


Athena Project’s 2017 Survey of Status of Women in Theatre in the Rocky Mountain Region is here! 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.
