Getting to the Heart of the Matter
We’ve had a couple of great conversations with reporters and podcasters recently!
The Hill Country Observer stopped by for an interview and published this lovely article, giving an artsy creative glimpse into philosophy and the fluid nature of The Old Stone Mill Center. Have a look at their excellent photography and this great, up-close and personal narrative.

The Old Stone Mill Center’s mission is to create public space for use by the creative community, including a center for re-use of materials diverted from the waste stream; art spaces and a machine shop with equipment and tools available to those who cannot afford to fully outfit their own studios; and to provide space for community members to come together to learn and experiment in arts and technology. There is a strong creative culture and strong embrace of environmental and energy concerns in the Berkshire County region, but it is often out of reach to everyday people. The Old Stone Mill Center will be a place for anyone to gain access to materials and means to participate more fully in creative and innovative endeavors.
Learn more About Us and our partners in this endeavor. Construction on Phase I of our interior renovations starts soon, so stay tuned to our News blog for updates as we prepare to host programs and events on site.
The Old Stone Mill Zero Waste Maker Space supports the recommendations of the Massachusetts Public Health Association’s Emergency Task Force on Coronavirus and Equity.
