Education is the core of Nguyen Art Foundation's philosophy, which aims to nurture a new generation of art enthusiasts from a young age.

Significant artworks from the Foundation’s collection are displayed across campuses, as well as in dedicated on-site art spaces. The Foundation's first exhibition, People, Victory and Life after the War, is presented in the Foundation's dedicated art spaces at the EMASI campuses in Nam Long and Van Phuc. NAF's future exhibitions will also be presented in the art spaces, welcoming students to study art and its connection to their world. Through prolonged exhibition, students are invited to return and reinterpret artworks, expanding their understanding.

As part of the art exhibitions, the Foundation also includes educational programming for students to learn more about the arts. The educational program includes lectures, workshops, and panel discussions around topics like curatorial processes, art history, art techniques, Vietnamese art and its social context, and more.
