Successful exhibitions in Geneva and London brought much needed income to struggling Vietnamese artists. Following his acceptance as a graduate student in 2006, Stuart was awarded an M.A. from Columbia in 2008. His thesis was an analysis of Civil Society in Japan which provided a stepping stone to his current pro bono work of advocacy for older persons and direct support of Social Integration. His currrent activities include the position of UN representative for HelpAge International, the largest global NGO supporting and advocating for older people.
