On the social front the gallery has been working closely with Support, an NGO that rehabilitates street children in the grip of drug addiction and Plan, a children’s organization working to alleviate child poverty. A considerable part of the income is used for these urchins. The gallery regularly holds exhibitions purely dedicated to charitable causes.
