Putting female artists front and center is what the Athena Project Festival is all about — and this year, the celebration has expanded to include more than 200 women involved in forty multidisciplinary performances taking place in five metro-area arts districts over seventeen days. “We hope to provide conversation-starters about why women deserve a place at the table and why women deserve to be equally represented in the arts,” says executive producer Angela Astle.

The festival’s theme this round is “Truth & Perception.” Things get started tonight at 8 p.m. with the world premiere of Harm’s Way, a theater production starring Karen Grassle (yes, Caroline Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie), at the Aurora Fox Black Box Theatre, 9900 East Colfax Avenue in Aurora; tickets are $20 to $22. An opening arts reception will also take place at 8 p.m., at the ACAD Gallery, 1400 Dallas Street in Aurora.

For the first time, the Athena Project will produce a mini-music festival this year — on March 29, at Cervantes’ Other Side — with a diverse lineup that includes Wheelchair Sports Camp, the Horse Latitudes and more. Other presentations include performances, workshops, fashion shows, visual-arts presentations and plays. The roster runs through April 5; for a complete festival schedule or to buy tickets, visit athenaprojectfestival.org.
