She has a considerable acquisitions budget at her disposal to enrich the collections of these institutions, and has been as attentive to fostering local crafts and audiences for art as she has to bringing international art and artists to Qatar. She also chairs the Doha Film Institute and Reach Out to Asia, which works to educate young people affected by natural disasters across Asia and beyond.
