Please Help Us!


Links to our Wa: Melbourne Ikebana Festival’s website have been repeatedly blocked by Facebook as a result of anonymous false accusations.

However, it may be possible for true Ikebana lovers to unite and work together against this nasty behaviour. If you think that this kind of dirty behaviour does not belong in the Ikebana world, please help us promote our festival.

Please like and share our Facebook posts, send an email to your friends, pass out our flyers, and talk to your family or neighbours. https://www.facebook.com/wa.ikebana/

Please do everything you can to help promote our festival!

We would love to declare that Wa 2019 was miraculously successful not “despite online harassment” but “thanks to these cowardly attacks”. We would be really grateful to this person. Because of their mean-spirited harassment, we all united to make this festival a great success. Online harassment could not hurt us but only made us stronger.
