ValleyCAST's mission is to foster a creative community in the Blackstone Valley that is inclusive and supportive of people with and without disabilities. ValleyCAST is a subsidiary of Open Sky Community Services, a DBA of Alternatives Unlimited, Inc. and The Bridge of Central Mass. In partnership with Open Sky and other community organizations, ValleyCAST sponsors a wide variety of community events that people of all abilities can enjoy together. The establishment of the Alternatives' Whitin Mill as an inclusive community treasure and cultural center is one way in which ValleyCAST achieves its goals. The Mill houses administrative offices and several programs as well as a technically advanced theater, an art gallery, public plaza, and artisan spaces, all renovated with respect for historic preservation and utilizing green technology.
We hope you’ll join us in the Spaulding R. Aldrich Heritage Gallery for wine and cheese receptions as we open exhibits by talented local artists; explore exciting theater with the six different companies and ensembles that call the GB & Lexi Singh Performance Center “home;” or stop by for live music on the Dennis H. Rice Community Plaza every Thursday evening during July and August as part of our Free Summer Concert Series.
