Growing Rural Arts In Nathalia

Located in a converted grain store shopfront in the middle of town, The G.R.A.I.N Store is a not-for-profit nationally recognized rural arts center with a history of exhibitions, performances and workshops.

The G.R.A.I.N. Store has been designated as a “Model Project” for rural development and arts and a unique relationship has been established with La Trobe University.  It fosters art which furthers community, the environment, rural health, reconciliation and education locally, statewide and nationally while contributing to the economic development of the area.

The G.R.A.I.N. Store acknowledges the Yorta Yorta people of the Yorta Yorta Nations as traditional owners of the lands skies and waters where we work. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future and recognise the strong connection to culture and innovation that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.

We were back from our summer break for two days before having to go back to closing our doors for a few days due to COVID restrictions.
We look forward to welcoming you all through Wunderkammer, our exciting first exhibition for the year by Jens Altheimer in collaboration with the local community. More details will be provided as soon as we can!

In the meantime, if you’re driving or walking past The G.R.A.I.N. Store especially at night, do have a quick peek through the windows at the show – don’t forget to keep your distance from anyone else who might be having a look.

Live music at The G.R.A.I.N. Store on the first Friday of the month.

Kicking off our monthly gig schedule in the outside area at The G.R.A.I.N. Store is our old friend Simon Marks accompanied by our soon to be new friend Pete Fiddler. Simon brings his passion and energy back for his annual show with us, introducing Nathalia and surrounds to yet another fabulous muso: Pete Fiddler resides in Bendigo and plays dobro and mandolin.

Food and refreshments will be available.
