The preparations for the Diplomacy Art exhibition, dedicated to displaying the rich culture of Azerbaijan with its youth’s creative talents, started in 2019. Established in 1999, the organizer of the exhibition “Dirchelish” Youth Social and Psychological Rehabilitation Center is working on various projects to reintegrate young people who have financial difficulties and who were affected by the war into society. The center, which has been a member of the Youth Department of the Council of Europe since 2006, promotes Azerbaijani culture abroad with the exhibitions it organizes all over the world. These exhibitions, which have been held on different continents since 2010, hosted 1701 works of 345 young artists in total.  

The exhibition is also supported by the Yunus Emre Institute, which attaches great importance to the activities carried out in the field of promoting the culture of Turkish-speaking peoples and raising awareness of Turkish culture and language.
