Intangible cultural heritage is not only something from the past but could be very much alive. To conserve and rejuvenate fast-disappearing Chinese craftsmanship, K11 Craft & Guild Foundation (KCG) forges the connections between the East & West, Traditions & the Contemporary, and Virtuality & Reality. With innovative mindsets and approaches, we re-interpret heritage through digital presentations and immersive experiences, as well as communicating it to the public with artistic application and collaboration.








A long-standing supporter of the art & culture commence ecosystem in Greater China, Ms Charlene Mo is overseeing this registered charity for conservation and rejuvenation on Chinese culture and savoir-faire. With a touch of modernity and innovation, Charlene leads the team to curate and contribute a series of cultural IP content, and launched a series of award-winning exhibitions: e.g. “K11 Voyage de Savior-Faire”, “Savoir-Faire: the Mastery of Craft in Fashion”, “The Four Seasons Recipe of the Cao’s”, “The Resurgence of Wooden Architecture”, as well as academic publications, brand collaborations, so as to rejuvenate Chinese culture and celebrate Chinese is cool. She also actively contributes to culture education outreach in the region.

Meanwhile, Charlene is a Senior Manager on designing and executing K11 commercial developments. She has developed a series of award-winning cultural landmarks in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Tianjin, etc.
