Zuni is a registered charitable cultural organisation in Hong Kong and a member of The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS). Zuni is committed to nurture humanistic qualities and to diversify social services with art and culture. In 2011, Zuni launched the Welfare Ticket Scheme to enable more people from different sectors of the society to have exposure to theatre and experimental arts, as well as a chance to see Zuni's productions. Eligible people include beneficiaries and members of staff at over 480 agency members of the HKCSS, beneficiaries of The Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) scheme, full time local students, school organisations, elderly and disabled people. 

"The Scheme allows our clients and members of staff to watch stage performances, nurturing their interest in art."
Ms. Yuen, Hong Kong Association for Cleft Lip and Palate

"Our clients do not have frequent access to entertainment and artistic performances. These performances broaden their horizons and alleviate negative emotions."
Mr. Chow, Concord Mutual Aid Club Alliance

"The Scheme allows our beneficiaries to watch various art performances and broaden their horizons."
Ms. Ng, ECFSCCL Bradbury Student Development Centre

Since its launch, the Scheme has been supported by over 140 social welfare organisations and over 59,000 beneficiaries have enjoyed high-quality theatre performances. People from less privileged backgrounds gained access to the arts, which have broadened their horizons, enriched their experiences, alleviated their negative emotions and increased their sense of belonging to the community.

People have less incentive to visit the theatre due to the recent situation. Zuni believes that the arts can stimulate the mind and its creativity, bringing positive changes to the society. As such, we continued the Zuni Welfare Ticket Scheme in season 2020 -
