Centre for Heritage Arts & Textile (CHAT)
Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile (CHAT), a non-profit art centre interweaving contemporary art, design, heritage and community, is a part of the heritage conservation project of The Mills, the building of which was formerly a cotton-spinning factory owned by Nan Fung Textiles. Through exhibitions and co-learning programmes, CHAT invites visitors to experience the spirit of the innovative legacy of Hong Kong's textile industry, weaving creative experiences for all.
Sam Tung Uk Museum
Sam Tung Uk is a 200-year-old Hakka walled village that was declared a historical monument in 1981. It was converted into the Sam Tung UK Museum after restoration in 1987. In June 2016, the Intangible Cultural Heritage Office set up the "Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage Centre" at Sam Tung Uk Museum as a display and resource centre.
Located at the heart of Central with over 170 years of history, the Central Police Station compound opened in May last year after ten years of revitalisation. Operating as a centre for Heritage and Arts, Tai Kwun offers the best heritage and arts experiences through a series of rich and vibrant programmes including thematic exhibitions, activities and performances. It helps cultivate the knowledge and interest of contemporary art, performing arts and history in our community.
