He noted that Ta'zieh (Condolence Theater or Passion Play inspired by a historical and religious event, the tragic death of Hussein, symbolizing epic spirit and resistance), painting, performing arts, Qashani or Kashani (a Persian decorative arts which had been popular in Iran in the 16th to 18th century), Āina-kāri (a kind of interior decoration by putting small pieces of mirror together in geometric forms or in forms of flowers and shrubs), calligraphy and writing system in Islamic Civilization have a significant position which some of them are being neglected which can be revived.

Dr. Velayati continued that Master Farshchian, as an example, is helping to date the art of Miniature (illuminated manuscript). He noted that IAU will run art branches in various cities that are relevant to the native art of that area.
