Linklaters Foundation

In line with the initiatives carried out to date and the firm's values of innovation and creativity, the Linklaters Foundation, chaired by Anne Wachsmann-Guigon, launched in 2015, acts on two pillars: solidarity-based pedagogy aimed at combating various forms of exclusion through education (support for the Ecole de la 2ème chance, the Cité Internationale Universitaire, the Etincelle Network...) and cultural sponsorship which promotes artistic development both in terms of creativity (partner of the David Hockney exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in 2017) and education (Le Bal and La Source). 

In parallel to this museum and institutional support, the Foundation's cultural commitment is also manifested by the building up, since 2010, of a collection of contemporary photographs exhibited in its premises. Recent acquisitions include works from the Yokainoshima series by Charles Fréger exhibited at the Rencontres d'Arles in 2016, photos from the La France series by Raymond Depardon and a work from the Parcours muséologique revisité (Versailles) series by Robert Polidori.

In 2022, the Linklaters Foundation is supporting the musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac off-wall programme for the public in prison, and more specifically the actions aimed at women prisoners. Thanks to this support, conferences, storytelling sessions, practical workshops and outings to the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac can be organised for prison staff and female participants.
