About this project
Athena Project is a professional group of artists with a mission to empower women & strengthen the community through developing & showcasing women’s artistic contributions.
Plays in Progress Series In 2012, we will produce a Plays in Progress Series at The Aurora Fox and The Edge Theatres in Denver. The 3 week series includes 6 - 8 new plays by women. Each play will receive 25 hours of rehearsal, culminating in a workshop presentation for an audience with basic lights, sounds, props, & set pieces. One play will be selected for a full production in the Athena Project Festival, March 2013.
Girls' Write In July of 2012 we will also unveil Girls' Write, a year-long playwriting workshop that provides at-risk pre-teens & teens with role models in the arts & helps to build future audiences for the 2013 Festival. Girls’ Write will culminate in a staged reading of 10 - 12 short plays by the girls themselves in the 2013 Festival. We're proud to have Girls Inc. as our partner with this program.
2013 Athena Project Festival In March 2013, we will produce a Festival that will include works by women and girls in the following areas:
- 12 performances of a new, full length play
- 12 performances by musicians
- Fine arts installation by one or more women artists
- 1 performance of ten short works-in-progress by girls
