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.


Media Mash-Up

Friday, November 30th from 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Athena Project and Women in Film & Media Colorado are staging the first ever MEDIA MASH-UP, a celebration of an ancient femme-forward folk story told in three mediums: theatrical, short film, and podcast. As part of the TedXMileHigh Adventure Series, the community will come together to share all three retellings and have a chance to hear about the very different processes involved in the creation of each project.

Dine + Drink = Donate

Tuesday, December 4th from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Join us at Cap City Tavern to celebrate Colorado Gives Day! Eat, drink, be merry – and help skyrocket women’s creative potential!
From 5:00 – 9:00 PM, 10% of all food purchases and 100% of Athena Project drink purchases support Athena Project Arts. All you have to do is order and enjoy, and you’ll be supporting Athena Project.



October 29th – December 4th

This November, we’re raising $20,000 for our #AthenaCreatesCommunity campaign. Won’t you join us?

Because you know that women’s artistic voices should be powerfully expressed alongside men’s, equally. After all, the richer the weave of ideas is around us, the stronger is the fabric of our communities. And that means a more connected, less polarized, safer and happier world for us all.
