Ruby Ticket Scheme

Help young people access art and culture by passing on free tickets using our Ruby Ticket Scheme.

As an organisation, you can create welcoming cultural experiences that help young people feel part of the creative community and develop their skills as cultural critics. Get involved by offering us tickets to your upcoming exhibitions, plays and gigs or register your venue as a Ruby Ticket Partner.

How does it work?

  1. If you are an Arts Emergency Network member, you can offer free tickets by completing the form below. Please send us your event with as much notice as possible, ideally a month to six weeks ahead
  2. We will ask you to read and agree to our Guidance on gift giving.
  3. We advertise the tickets to our Young Community members and mentors via a newsletter that goes out on the 1st of the month and allocate them fairly.
  4. Arts Emergency will either accept tickets and pass them on or provide your venue with a list of names and email addresses.
  5. Venues who receive guest lists from us should send confirmation emails to our young people with the ticket and any access information included the week before the event.
  6. After the event, we'll also encourage our young people to write reviews and we'll share them online.

Become a Ruby Ticket Partner

Every month our young people and mentors ask for tickets to attend various exhibitions, shows, and events. If you work at a gallery, museum, theatre or cinema that is able to provide us tickets on request, please sign up to be a Ruby Ticket Partner below.

The Wild Conference was such an eye opening and encouraging experience. I met a vast range of people that are in the arts and I engaged in vital discussions about funding cuts and the future of the creative sector. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
