The Mills Internship

Program Feature

The Mills is a landmark revitalization project from Nan Fung Group. Once the vibrant heart of Nan Fung Textiles in its manufacturing heyday in the 1960s, the former textile Mills 4, 5 and 6 are now transformed into a single complex called The Mills, comprising of 3 pillars: The Mills Fabrica; The Mills Shopfloor; and the Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile (CHAT).

The Mills witnessed the manufacturing heyday in the 1960s, and now carries on that legacy with a future of applied creativity and innovation. Visitors can explore the continuity of an authentic Hong Kong story, where themes of textile and industry are woven into experiences of innovation, culture, and learning.
