Girls Create’s mission is to empower girls to lead and effect change in themselves and others through creative learning.

Girls Create is a mentoring program not only for play writing, but for dance and fashion too. The program teaches girls (6th through 10th grade) various aspects of these performing art forms in a unique way–we prioritize on bringing in professionals from the community to teach the program, guest artists to share their expertise and utilize mentors also from the community to provide guidance to the girls and encourage their own creations.

13139362_995337270552545_7779703447422907265_nEach week long program culminates in a final project for the week where we invite the community, including friends and family of the girls, to see their work. Girls Create will take place this summer in collaboration with Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, (RMCAD), Bella Diva Dance, and Communitas Studios. Girls who participate in the summer camps may have their work selected to be featured in our Girls Create Celebration during the 2018 Athena Project Arts Festival and the opportunity to continue to work on their art with a mentor between the summer camp and the March Festival if desired.
