> Establishing several activities that rely primarily on the participation of ideas and dialogue and introducing the other.

> Establishment of several activities that depend primarily on what is new in the world of art and its relationship to technology, for example, Interactive Art which is an art based on interaction with the recipient of the creative work.

> Direction towards interacting with art students and contributing to the definition of various arts by contribution, assistance and participation in the international workshops to give them the information they need smoothly contrary to the conventional method adopted in academies through lectures.

> Complete artistic upbringing of members of the community as the educational process in Egypt lacks this important aspect. Nobody has supplemented it until now.

> Development of creative capacities of young people and their parents through holding training sessions for various arts, such as painting and ceramics, music and special computer techniques and narrative storytelling through digital art.

> Turning to teachers of art subjects at art schools and establishing workshops to raise the level of thinking and development capabilities as they are considered as the ones responsible for producing by their hands generations who may be interested or not interested in culture and arts.

> Creating partnership projects with institutions within and outside Egypt for a number of artistic activities and cultural exchange programs.
