In April 2008, Menassat organized a photography workshop in Bahrain in collaboration with the Association of Bahraini Journalists. Seventy working photographers were given a three-day training by Menassat's project manager, photographer Samer Mohdad, after which they were given assignments focusing on either the Manama central fish market or the Friday market, Al-Haraj. These are some of the pictures they came back with.
