The feature event of our 60th anniversary celebrations is a livestream demonstration from Tokyo Headquarters followed by a party at Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) Brisbane from 4pm on Thursday 24 August 2023.

Master Instructor of Sogetsu HQ Nakamura Sozan will prepare 5-7 medium to large arrangements during a 70 minute online demonstration in Cinema A at GOMA. This is a wonderful opportunity to watch a Master Instructor at work.

Then we will move to GOMA Bistro beside the Brisbane River for a celebration party with drinks and finger food.

Annual Exhibition  – 21-22 August 2021 – cancelled 

It is with regret that Sogetsu Ikebana Queensland Inc. has cancelled its 2021 exhibition.
Due to further restrictions of space and the heightened concern of  everyone’s health and well being made presenting our exhibition to the public too difficult.
Thank you for following the beauty of Sogetsu Ikebana with us.
Stay safe and take care
