The Galleries within the building being part of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS University of London) are dedicated to promoting a better understanding of the art, culture, history and contemporary contexts of Africa, Asia and the Middle East to a new and wider audience through a programme of changing exhibitions and events, with a permanent rotating display of a selection of SOAS's own collections shown in the Foyle Special Collections Gallery.

The Gallery also has a Japanese-inspired roof garden built during the Anglo - Japan 2001, it provides an area away from the noise and bustle of London streets, where visitors can relax and meditate.

Compassion Character
The garden is dedicated to Forgiveness, which is the meaning of the Kanji character engraved on the garden’s granite water basin.
