Dubai hotel partners charity to support people of determination

DUBAI, 22 days ago

Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown has partnered with Heroes of Hope, a not-for-profit charity, to curate and host a four-week art programme sponsored by ArtistPals, to encourage people of determination to be pioneers of their own futures.
 
The final artworks created by the young artists of determination, during the programme, will be presented at an event, as part of the Art Series at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown, on October 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. 
 
Contemporary British artist, humanitarian and one of the world's celebrated living artists Sacha Jafri, will be present at the event, as Guest of Honour, to support this initiative.
 
During the four-week programme, eight talents of determination were welcomed at the hotel for guided tours to draw inspiration from the collections of art and design. 
 
Resident Art Manager Astrid Lesuisse organised workshops with leading artists with distinct backgrounds and styles to share their individual skills and techniques with the group. Participating artists included self-taught Emirati artist Badr Abbas, British-born artist Belinda Freeman, Iranian visual artist Asareh Ebrahimpour, Franco-Algerian-Spanish embroidery artist Chloé Robin, and French artist Anne-Laure Roy.
 
Talking about the initiative, hotel General Manager Laura Eggleton said: “We aspire to nurture and promote talent and believe it is important to inspire young creative minds. As part of Hotel Indigo’s brand ethos, it is important we connect with our community, and as such we are delighted to partner with Heroes of Hope as we create a space for people of determination to develop their artistic capabilities as they showcase their art.”-TradeArabia News Service
