Event produced by Josh Wood Productions
Since its inception in 2010, the Inspiration series has grown to
include Galas in six cities around the world: New York, Paris, Los
Angeles, São Paulo, Toronto, and Miami, with each year featuring a different
design “Inspiration.” For the first time, Rio de Janeiro will be added
to this list. The celebratory dinner will follow a screening of the film, The Battle of amfAR, in the Rio de Janeiro Film Festival.
Performers at past events have included Gilberto Gil, Jennifer Hudson, Liza Minnelli, Sinéad O’Connor, Debbie Harry, Courtney Love, Dita Von Teese, Cyndi Lauper, Kelly Rowland, Scissor Sisters, Seu Jorge, and Katy Perry. Past participants have included Sharon Stone, Kate Moss, Pelé, Sandra Bullock, Andy Cohen, Francisco Costa, Claire Danes, Marc Jacobs, Sofia Coppola, Kevin Huvane, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Chelsea Handler. To date, the Inspiration
series has raised more than $9 million to benefit amfAR.
