"Over the past two days, NEA volunteers Tanya, Michaela and Marshall have been sanding back the floorboards in one of the rooms at our new Carrier St location and boy oh boy what a difference it makes! Thank you to the team for what was a mammoth undertaking and we hope that your bones aren't too weary today
Getting there folks....
Keep watching this space!
Have you spotted our NEA signs at our new location? As you may know, NEA has vacated it's location in the old SEC building on Bridge St. We look forward to welcoming you all to 28B & C Carrier St once restrictions have lifted! There are many more announcements to come and exciting things in store so watch this space ➡️🔲
We'd like to take this chance to thank Benalla Furniture Removals & Storage for donating their time, muscles and truck to help us with the move, Courtney from Ray White Benalla for her professionalism in organising our new lease, and of course all of our volunteers and members who helped us with the move. Thank you all for your patience, understanding and ongoing support as we've navigated this unprecedented time 😁
We’re excited to announce that we have found a new home for NEA at 28 B and C Carrier Street!
These are uncertain times as we handle coronavirus restrictions. We’re grateful to be able to fulfil our role as a vibrant part of the Benalla community.
The new premises will change the look and feel of NEA. We’re looking forward to opening and seeing how our new home operates to serve our members and the artistic community of Benalla and surrounds.
Do you have any practical and exciting ideas for how NEA operates? Everything we achieve is through the strength of our volunteers and members. We encourage you to take an active role in NEA. Get involved, share your ideas, contribute your skills and help this moment of change in NEA’s history be a foundation for its growth.
Interested in learning more about the premises or getting involved? Please contact us through the contact page and we will touch base with you.

The future of NEA - a message from the management committee to NEA Artists, Artisans, Volunteers and Members
Dear Artists, Artisans, Volunteers and Members,
Recently we asked for your feedback about NEA’s next steps and whether we should stay at our current premises. Thank you for the well-considered responses we received.
The overwhelming majority of the feedback confirmed our previous decision to vacate the current premises. Taking this into consideration, the North East Artisans Management Committee has voted to depart the premises located at 122-124 Bridge Street East, Benalla.
We have not made this decision lightly but with the best intentions for the interests of our artists, artisans, members, volunteers and the wider communities that make up NEA.
It is with gratitude that we depart our Bridge Street location. It has served us well over many years. A working group is actively seeking a new home for our creative community.
The organisation known as North East Artisans (NEA) will continue!
While our location may change, our organisation continues to grow and thrive. We attribute this to the passion and commitment of our members. We are excited and optimistic about the next stage of NEA’s development, in a new place that will suit our changing needs.
We need our volunteers more than ever. We need leaders to guide us through this period of change. We need admin support, customer service skills, marketing and many hands that will shape our organisation moving forward. This is a time to create, strategise, plan and build an even brighter future. We look forward to seeing the contributions you can make.
We will continue to keep you updated with all forthcoming information.
Yours with a deep appreciation,
NEA Management Committee.
