Supporting Performing Arts Collections

The Association of Performing Arts Collections (APAC) is the membership organisation for professionals, specialists, and other individuals working with or interested in performing arts heritage in the United Kingdom and Ireland. APAC offers meetings, visits, symposia, study days, an email forum, working groups, and collaborative projects.

APAC advocates the widest possible engagement in performing arts heritage collections by the general public.

APAC is the UK’s Subject Specialist Network for performing arts and has close links with SIBMAS, the international association for this sector.
