What is LPL?
LPL is Learn · Play · Lead. We learn from remarkable people and from our own. We play to be creative. We lead ourselves and then other people.
LPL, is the theme of our Cultural Heritage Leadership Project, funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
We believe Cultural Heritage is more than brick and mortar. It's the sum total of our memories and experiences. It's the spirit that shapes our City.
People are the true custodians of cultural heritage. Our stories are the stories of Hong Kong. There are many stories waiting to be told. By people who are remarkable in their own ways. Some of them are already famous in what they do. Some are heroes unsung.
Mission of LPL
1. Restoration of the Fringe Club building
It's built originally as an ice depot by old Dairy Farm more than 100 years ago. From 1984, by stages, the Fringe Club has converted it into a vibrant award-winning contemporary arts space.
For the first time, after witnessing epochal changes of Hong Kong, we're going to restore the historical details as well as light up the facade as a tribute to this very special grade-1 historical building.
A team of conservationists and architects is to give advice for the capital works. At the same time, they act as a bridge between the actual heritage building restoration and the so-called intangible cultural heritage that brings us to the 2nd part of our program.
2. Learn · Play · Lead
In this tripartite concept, we want to Learn from the People we consider Remarkable in what they do, how they think and live their lives. In order not to let rigid, formal and timid kind of thinking box us in, we propose to Play as a way to be creative and finding solutions in the workplace and everyday life. In the process, we learn to Lead by example and experience.
