Athena Project Arts Festival 2018

The Athena Project Arts Festival blasts the voices of female artists across the Denver metro area – it gives women the stage, hands them the mic, and lets them riff like rebels!

This dynamic festival fills the month of March with the theatre, music and dance of Denver’s talented female creators, and is a huge part of our program powering women and girls toward artistic leadership.

Athena Project 2018 Arts Festival

  • We start the festival in style, with a Girls Create Celebration – performances and displays of the incredible work of middle and high school graduates of our Girls Create Summer Camps.
  • Songwriters and musicians jam brand new collaborations and shine bright slants on classics during our Weekend of Music.
  • A kaleidoscope of performers together explore expression through movement in an Evening of World Dance – and you too can join the exploration, during dance master classes and panel discussions.
  • In our innovative Plays In Progress Series , women playwrights collaborate with directors, dramaturgs and actors to bring brand new work to the public – and the audience talks back!
