MILL6 Foundation

MILL6 Foundation is a non-profit, fund-seeking arts and cultural organization and a charity in Hong Kong. Established in 2015 and as part of a heritage conservation project of the former cotton spinning factory Nan Fung Textile Mills, the space is expected to be completed in 2018.

Centered on textile arts and culture and research on its heritage and innovation, MILL6 is establishing the permanent collection while curating a series of pre-opening programs consisting of: Exhibition, Community Engagement, Learning, Heritage, Artist-in-Residence and Public Art. It aims to foster independent creative practice, as well as to explore new meanings and experience of textile arts and ‘techstyle’ innovation with local communities. The institution is committed to preserving the essence of local culture and heritage, conserving the valued stories of the textile industry, and driving a continuous dialogue between Hong Kong and international creators. Our exhibitions and activities provide a way for local communities to ‘look out’ to the outside world, and a way for international creatives to ‘look in’ to Hong Kong.
