ValleyCAST’s mission is to foster a creative and engaged community in the Historic Blackstone Valley that is inclusive and supportive of all people with and without disabilities. 

ValleyCAST is the arts and culture wing of Open Sky Community Services, Inc. Open Sky was formed in 2018 through the affiliation of two of Central Massachusetts’ premier human service organizations, Alternatives Unlimited, Inc. and The Bridge of Central Massachusetts. 

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 Open Sky services 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.

Whether an art exhibition, concert, play or historic tour, events that bring people together and inspire new connections are always taking place. During COVID, we even expanded our presence on social media!
