- Spiral Sculpture Garden - by Artist Melissa Carey- Heart-warming cacao - set your intention - Heart opening meditation - Unleash your wild heart - energetic dance - Live drumming- Warming dinner (Vegan GF DF plus other side dishes, menu will be announced)- Heart-to-heart connection & conscious conversations- Sound Healing Session and Music- Ending with a fire performance around the Spiral Sculpture!
Saturday Evening 23rd April 6pm - 9pm  (DATE CHANGE)
Location - Melissa's Art Studio Warehouse - 53 West Burleigh Road, Burleigh Heads GOLD COAST QLD. NOTE there is no parking at the venue - please park at the scout hall (two buildings before the warehouse) or on the street. 
I am raising money through this event to build a new sculpture garden at the front of my art studio. The garden will be shared by the community to help us sell our sculptures on a prominent position on the main street of Burleigh.
I recently completed building my biggest sculpture yet - โ€˜The Spiral of Life' a 4 metre helical spiral made from steel that I welded myself. The sculpture was on display at Swell Sculpture Festival last year and has been sadly sitting in pieces. We have been offered an amazing opportunity to install the sculpture outside my art studio in the heart of Burleigh, so that I can showcase my work in order to sell the sculpture and in the meantime, share it with the community! Art should be enjoyed, not sitting in a warehouse! 
 100% PROFIT from tickets will go towards these costs!
Where the money will be spent:
- Assembling the spiral sculpture - hiring machinery and paying my team to help assemble, cost of tools and hiring a welder- Sourcing recycled timber to build planter boxes & screws etc.- Cost of buying soil and plants for the garden- Pay for lighting so we can light up the sculpture garden at night- Any extra money will help us build a bigger sculpture garden! 
'The Spiral of Life ' is a portal of energy, where you can let go of what no longer serves you and send it through the spiral to be transformed. 
Being part of a series of work, the spiral sculpture design represents strength and unity using a helical circle shape when viewed from the front of the sculpture. The helical spiral, as found in nature, is essentially the transmission of energy, radiating out and drawing in, infinitely and eternally. As we exist in nature flowing with energy, connecting to one another and our place it creates an infinite flow of energy โ€“ the essence of life itself flowing through us and around us. 'The Spiral of Life ' is inspired by the Fibonacci sequence (the golden ratio), and the spiral form symbolises our connection with nature and ourselves. As everything originates from a spiral, including our DNA, it is a symbol of harmony in nature.
What people are saying about this sculpture:

The last WILD HEART Fundraising dinner that Melissa hosted 3 years ago in Sydney had over 50 people gathering together and was such a magical experience, and this is what people shared after the event:
โ€œIโ€™m filled with so much love after Saturday night. Thank you all for being such incredibly open, fun and loving beings and thanks to everyone who worked to create the eventโ€ - Elise
โ€œI am ever so thankful for the warm space created for and by this event. Reflecting back on the moment I asked to join in twirling is a noteworthy breakthrough moment for me. The courage to enquire, the desire to be involved, to share, and the welcoming inclusion. I am reconnecting with elements of myself that have been crushed for too long. I am growing from this experience, the after burn, the heat is increasing every day in my heart fire. Love! Love! Love! And Gratitude!โ€ - Waz
