It works to develop photography in the country and discover the creativity of Qatari youth in this field through the courses, workshops, competitions and photography exhibitions offered by the center throughout the year.

The center aims to establish a generation of Qatari trainers as part of the center’s strategic goals. We will work at the center to attract young talent in the field of photography, and they will be qualified academically to become trainers in the future. This is done by organizing workshops and lectures on various main themes of photography, as well as seminars and presentations, which are primarily based on the youth component, both inside and outside the country, and by representing the youth sector in local festivals and in relevant national, Arab and international events.
