National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) New Membership Scheme

National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) New Membership Scheme

To thank the general public and our loyal members for their ongoing support since its opening in 2018, the Center is launching a new membership scheme for 2020.

There will be a change in Weiwuying membership renewal policy from 2020, when reward points will replace the current system. Members can accumulate points at a rate of one point per dollar spent.The new scheme allows you to transfer points to a friend or family member from 2021. After renewing your membership at the end of the year, you can transfer any remaining points to up to three friends or family members. In the event that no points are transferred within a month after your membership is renewed, your remaining points will become invalid and your balance will be reset to zero.

 

Members can collect points from tickets purchased for our programs and by shopping in the Center's stores and restaurants as well as our online store. A minimum discount of 10% is applied in stores and restaurants and on our branded products, excluding sale items. Other benefits include priority access to our latest programs and events, listed in our e-newsletter and official bimonthly magazines.
 

Weiwuying Unlimited stole the hearts of theatergoers and music lovers in the past year. Applications for 2020 Unlimited membership open on Thursday, November 7, 2019. As a new Unlimited member, you can attend Weiwuying programs in 2020 for free and receive an event program from the front desk of the venue by presenting your membership card and stamped ticket on the day of the performance.

Benefits of the New Membership Scheme

Weiwuying Lifestyle (NT$300/per year)

Lifestyle members enjoy a 10% discount on unlimited tickets for programs organized by Weiwuying (excluding co-organized or co-sponsored programs). Lifestyle members joining in 2020 will qualify for free membership renewal by earning 4800 points in a year. After the deduction of qualifying points for membership renewal at the end of the year, you can transfer any remaining points to up to three friends or family members at 4800 points per new Lifestyle membership. In the event that no points are transferred within a month after you successfully renew your membership, your remaining points will become invalid and your balance will be reset to zero.

Weiwuying Youth members enjoy a 25% discount on tickets for programs and events organized by Weiwuying (card holder only, one ticket per performance) and 10% off an unlimited number of further tickets. Free membership renewal is available for 2020 Youth members if they meet the qualifying requirements: earning 2400 points in a year, subject to proof of age and student status. For those with enough points but no valid student status, a payment of NT$150 or a transfer of 4800 points will qualify you for Lifestyle membership. After deducting the required points for free renewal at the end of the membership year, any remaining points can be used to acquire up to three Youth cards for friends or family members at 2400 points per card, providing they meet the stated requirements for Youth membership. In the event that no points are transferred within a month after you successfully renew your membership, your remaining points will become invalid and your balance will be reset to zero.
