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.
