The mission of Culture Project’s Women Center Stage (WCS) initiative is to support and vigorously promote the work of women artists, and to celebrate the unique contribution of women to social justice and human rights through the arts. The cornerstone of WCS, our Women Center Stage Festival, aims to be a dynamic and diverse laboratory for works in progress by women artists at all stages of their careers. The month-long Festival provides a much needed home for exploring new ideas and inspiration, testing out Early Stages of new work, and putting women artists in conversation with new audiences, potential collaborators, future mentors and a vibrant community of peers.

The highlight of the Festival is performance, featuring new artists every evening from teenagers to Tony Award nominees, bringing to the stage some of the most exciting talent with the potential to have great impact on our future. This year, WCS explores works in progress, a workshop series of plays in development, in addition to weeknight roundtable conversations among artists and audience.
