Grand Hyatt Doha partners with locally-based, Australian artist, Pip Hoy to launch “The Corridor” concept to support the local art community in Qatar. This new exciting initiative by Grand Hyatt Doha supported by the Hyatt Thrive initiative, offers a unique gallery space for locally based artists who wish to exhibit their work to the Doha public as well as international visitors alike.
After a successful solo show hosted by the Grand Hyatt Doha, Pip was invited to partner with the hotel as their art consultant and curator for The Corridor. Amongst a range of talents, Pip offers a unique mix of business acumen and creative finesse. She believes in the benefits of fostering a grass-roots arts scene and hopes that The Corridor offers a unique opportunity to locally-based artists.

Franzen. “I believe that corporate support for local events is vital to ensure the local community and the business within it literally thrive.
