Artfully Minded Open Mic Nights & Workshops

October 9, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm MDT


Athena Project presents its newest extension of the Girls Create program – Artfully Minded Open Mic Nights & Workshops for 6th – 10th grade girls* interested in learning and/or performing art forms such as spoken word, poetry, music, acting/monologues, playwriting, stand-up, and dance.

Join us on the 2nd Mondays monthly for an event that brings in professionals from the community to teach workshops and provide guidance during the creative process for various artistic disciplines.

Each 50-minute workshop culminates in an open mic where students share their work, whether from that night’s workshop or other projects. Each open mic spot is for 5 minutes and there are 7 performance spots. We invite the community, including friends & family of the participants, to experience these performances. Event is free, although a suggested donation is welcome.

Oct 9 – Our workshop leader is Kylee Wellons and the topic is poetry

While this event is open to the public, space is limited so a reservation is required to attend. See the schedule and sign up at

About Athena Project: Athena Project empowers women* through the arts by providing women artists with paid work opportunities while also ensuring audiences get to see and hear them. We change the world, one paid woman artist at a time. Our programs evolve as the political and social landscape changes.

At present, they include: Read & Rant: A Plays in Progress Series, a book club that serves the needs of new playwrights, providing them with readers and dramaturgical support while providing community members with opportunities to support new work. Curating Art for Impact, a collaboration with or on behalf of community partners, providing unique experiential art such as pop-up performances which elevates and amplifies their missions. Artful Reflections, a forum which connects artists with their audiences and fellow artists with a facilitated discussion about the emotional impact of the art through the lens of the attendants’ world views and identities. Girls Create summer intensive week-long camps exploring various art forms, and monthly Artfully Minded open mic nights and workshops, empowering girls to lead and effect change in themselves and others through creative learning.

*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, non-binary, trans and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
