Wa 2020 Update: 23 Jan 2020

Wa: Melbourne Ikebana Festival 
Please join our exhibition! All ikebana schools welcome.
Wa, an international ikebana festival, will be bigger and better this year with more new exciting events. 

Wa can promote ikebana most effectively and consequently it will help provide our ikebana teachers with more professional opportunities. Wa also provides our teachers & students with opportunities to challenge and to develop as international ikebana artists. 

Some of highlights this year are: 
Ikebana Dinner Show, Renka with Mozart: Group Ikebana Performance with Orchestra 21, and Ikebana Performance with Paul Grabowsky.    

Our Committee has been formed as follow: Director - Shoso Shimbo, Secretary - Nobuko Kobayashi, Treasury - Angeline Lo, Project Managers - Aileen Duke, Angeline Lo & Katrina (TBC), Site Manager - Sue Healey & Curator - Kaye Wong

4. Renka Performers Wanted
Would you like to perform at the Rena with Mozart? This is the first Renka with live orchestra in the Australian history of ikebana (arguably first in the history of ikebana). 

Performers will be paid a small amount, if we sold more than 30 tickets, which is very likely! More importantly you will be a part of ikebana history in an international cultural festival.        
Details will be announced in Shoso's class. All selected applicants have to attend special trainings including full day workshops.
