Launched during Art Dubai 2018, Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay has joined hands with Mawaheb From Beautiful People.
An art studio for adults with special needs, Mawaheb welcomes young adults from 16 years of age to develop life skills through art and the German hospitality brand aims to support the initiative by displaying their work at the property.
Brothaus, the hotel’s traditional bakery bistro is now home to a selection of artwork from one of Mawaheb’s German artist, Vincent Baur. The 22-year old has been a student at Mawaheb for more than five years and specialises in street art and graffiti.

This initiative represents the first phase of the collaboration between the hotel and Mawaheb, with a host of unique events being planned for the coming months.
