As part of Africa Day 2023, Hilton is celebrating the continent’s vibrant cultures through a series of unique collaborations with African artists. By celebrating culture and embracing diversity, these local art partnerships are in support of Hilton’s Travel with Purpose ESG strategy, aimed at creating a positive impact across the communities Hilton operates in around the world.

Hilton’s hotels across the Africa & Indian Ocean region are supporting their local communities and spotlighting local cultures by partnering with artists to create installations, showcase their work, as well as provide them with an opportunity to sell their art pieces. Various hotels are hosting art exhibitions – as well as art fairs, with each piece telling a story ranging from African mythology and creativity, to making use of sustainable sourcing and recyclable materials. 

Some of the inspiring art collaborations and the stories include:

Transcorp Hilton Abuja recently partnered with Nduwhite Ndubuisi Ahanonu, the Nigerian artist behind ‘The Face’, an installation created from recycled materials collected from the hotel’s garage and workstation. The collaboration was centered around environmental sustainability and has been created in collaboration with the United States Embassy. The installation serves as a reminder of the impact of human activity on the environment and encourages people to think more about sustainability.
