In 1966, newly created administrative units namely Doha Cultural Center and Folklore Censorship, and the Theater Section were all affiliated to the Broadcasting Department of the Ministry of Information. The establishment of these new units presented a prelude to the creation of Culture and Arts Department in 1975. In fact, the existing units and other newly founded sections such as the Fine Arts, the Exhibitions, the Studies and Research as well as the Administrative and Financial Affairs presented the origins of the first entity of the cultural work in Qatar.

In general, the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage is in charge of:
