May 23, 2018 | WeWork’s Creator Awards are coming to Jerusalem next month and the event will feature an opening performance by the Israeli singer who won the 2018 Eurovision song contest this month, Netta, as well as live appearances by Aviv Geffen. The award show, which honors entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups and non-profits, is scheduled for June 20 at Jerusalem’s Pais Arena. The accolades are awarded in four categories with a chance to win up to $360,000: performing arts, nonprofits, business venture, and community giver. WeWork launched the Creator Awards Initiative in March 2017, and hosted them in Tel Aviv last October. Over 5,000 people attended that event, where winners were awarded a total of $1.4 million. WeWork says that since launching the program, it has given away more than $16 million in funding and has received over 9,000 applications from creators in cities all over the world. Creator Awards events have already been hosted in Mexico City, Shanghai and San Francisco, with events planned for Nashville, São Paulo, Seoul, London and Berlin.
