Q:
"Ikebana Journey - is a curation of exclusive testimonials from choosing artists, sharing their journey and experience with the traditional Japanese practice of flower arrangement."

Is this sentence is grammatically correct?

A: "choosing artists" would not be correct. I think you mean, "chosen artists" however the use of the word "curation" already lets the reader know that what's presented in Ikebana Journey has gone through a selection process.

Personally I think it might sound smoother as, "Ikebana Journey - is a curation of exclusive testimonials from artists, sharing their journey and experience with the traditional Japanese practice of flower arrangement."

Later, Ikebana also gained popularity among common people. Since then Ikebana has been with us for 600 years as one of Japanese traditional arts. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: Very good job!

Just a few things to point out.

1) In the first sentence, you should change “was” to “were” since the object here is plural.

2. Change “centuries” in the third sentence to “century”.

3. In you last sentence, you should either omit “since then” or “for 600 years”. You are repeating two prepositional phrases about time, when you only need one
