This four-week Festival will offer works written, directed and produced entirely by women. 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, the Women Center Stage 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/mentees and a vibrant community of peers. This year, WCS explore works in progress, a workshop series of plays in development, in addition to a weeknight roundtable conversations among artists and audience. 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.
