Short Story

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.

Campaign Story

Did you know that most of our income comes from individual donations? Which means that YOUR contribution always makes a HUGE difference.

Every donation you make supports Athena Project’s upcoming programming, which including our Girls Create Celebration and our Plays In Progress (PIPs) series.

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.

Our unparalleled Girls Create summer camp program ignites the passions and talents of 6th to 10th grade girls in playwriting, comedy and improv, song writing and fashion design. Professionals teach, guest artists share their expertise, and mentors from the community guide and encourage – empowering girls to lead, and to affect change in themselves and others through creative learning.

Each week long program culminates in a final project for the week, we invite the community, including friends and family of the girls, to see their work.  This Friday celebration is a highlight for participants and instructors!

Our Girls Write is a theatre and writing immersion camp that empowers girls’ imaginations through their creation of individual short plays. Guest actors and directors bring each story to life in a staged reading at the end of the week. As they develop the creative tools for storytelling, girls gain confidence in their unique voices and experience the value in sharing ideas.

Our Girls Comedy & Improv camp features seasoned mentors providing a fun space for girls to exercise their creative energies through creating comedy sets and working on improv scenes to boost self-confidence, spontaneity and playfulness. The campers will show off their improv skills and perform their comedy sets at the end of the week.

At our Girls Design Fashion camp girls unleash their inner fashionista! With professional fashion designers to guide them, they learn the principles of illustration, design, fabric draping, and construction. This camp not only provides a fun creative outlet, it also helps develop key life skills like innovation, focus, planning, and problem solving.

NEW THIS YEAR! Our Girls Write Songs camp teaches the process of writing and performing your own songs.

 

At Girls Create, we believe that “Girl” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “Girl” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum that is welcome at camp. We want to create a safer space for the expression and growth for all girls, trans and gender-nonconforming individuals. We ask for pronouns because we don’t want to assume anyone’s gender identity! If you are comfortable sharing please do, if not that’s ok too. Knowing your preferred Pronouns helps us to address you in the way most comfortable for you.

 

 

*Disclosure: This campaign has been created by Charhub’s support team on behalf of The Athena Project who will be the sole recipient of all contributions as outlined within our Terms. For further details, read our Disclaimer or contact our support team at support@charhub.org
