Jumeirah Group introduces an Arts and Culture Award for the luxury sectorJumeirah Group, the Dubai-based luxury hospitality company and a member of Dubai Holding, has launched an Arts and Culture Award at the 15th Annual Luxury Briefing Awards, celebrating the best in the luxury industry and taking place last night at The Savoy Ballroom in front of 450 of the sector’s major players.
Committed to this ethos, Jumeirah Group was delighted to sponsor a new award, the Jumeirah Group Arts and Culture Award, which salutes leading international enterprises supporting artists and advancing artistic practice through innovative creative collaborations in the business arena.
In a category of seven top-tier luxury nominees, including Fendi, Rolex and Montblanc amongst others, it was Louis Vuitton’s ‘Young Arts Project’ that won the Jumeirah Group Arts and Culture Award. The Young Arts Project offers British students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the concepts and ideas of the contemporary art world. Thatcher Brown, Vice President-Brand Strategy & Management for Jumeirah Group, presented the award to the director of the South London Gallery, Margot Heller. Katherine Gass, Jumeirah Curator, was a judge on the panel.
Jumeirah Group has a strong dedication to the arts that is demonstrated through its global arts and culture platform. This platform includes an ‘Artist in Residence’ programme; international art fairs sponsorships; and exhibitions and initiatives in the Group’s hotels in Dubai, New York, London and Shanghai, and soon in Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi.
