About Cultural Journalism Campus

Cultural Journalism Campus (CJC) is an award-winning non-profit educational initiative founded by Vivienne Chow. It aims to raise the profile of cultural journalism and art criticism and promote art appreciation in Asia and beyond. CJC offers aspiring young journalists and critics a unique learning opportunity to polish their skills under the guidance of media veterans and leaders of the arts and cultural sector in a professional media setting.

Since our inauguration in 2014, CJC has organised a series of seminars, forums and workshops for aspiring cultural journalists and art critics from Hong Kong, mainland China, South Korea and Switzerland. With generous support from our partners, including Goethe-Institut Hongkong, Arts in Heritage Research and our current partner MILL6 Foundation, our programmes have benefited more than 200 young people over the past three years.

The annual CJC Fellowship, which takes place at Art Basel in Hong Kong, offers young writers a unique experience of the art world. They also receive hands-on media training through the production of Culture Express, our newspaper that is distributed at Art Basel. In 2015, CJC was awarded Merit in Arts Education by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. In 2016, CJC also begins to develop an arts education outreach programme for disadvantaged children.

MILL6 Foundation is a non-profit arts and cultural institution and a registered charity in Hong Kong. Established in 2015 and as part of The Mills heritage conservation project, the space is expected to complete in 2018.
As an arts and cultural institution centered on textile arts in Hong Kong, MILL6 curates a series of programs consisting of: Permanent Collection, Exhibition, Community Engagement, Learning, Artist-in- Residence, Heritage and Public Art, to foster independent creative practice, as well as to explore new meanings and experience of textile arts and techstyle innovation with local communities. The non-profit 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 to ‘look out’ to the outside world for local creative and communities, and a way to ‘look in’ for international creative and communities to learn about Hong Kong.
