Growing Rural Arts In Nathalia

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 located in a converted grain store shopfront in the middle of town.

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.

Building and Picturing Community
A photographic response.

OPENING EVENT Thursday 22nd April, 6pm

This photographic exhibition explores the way both local and other artists have responded to crises that have affected our communities. Art plays a role in recording events from a creative perspective, as well as processing and healing after.

As well as the opening event, which will have an official opening speaker, The G.R.A.I.N. Store also invites you along to meet some of the people behind this work and have an informal chat and a cuppa while you enjoy the exhibition on Saturday 24th April, 11am – 12pm.

Book tickets for the artist talk event here.
