Founded in 2015, MILL6 Foundation is a non-profit, fund-seeking arts and cultural organization and a charity in Hong Kong. As a part of the heritage conservation project of The Mills, former Nan Fung Textile Mills, it is situated in Tsuen Wan and scheduled to open in Fall 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.
Announced in 2014 by Nan Fung Group on its 60th anniversary, The Mills project will transform and revitalize the company’s former textile factories into a destination for innovation, culture and learning. The project was inspired by the desire to reinvent the way we think about development in Hong Kong - to honour our history while building the future.
The Mills is scheduled for completion in 2018.
