Supporting Performing Arts Collections

The Association of Performing Arts Collections (APAC) is the membership organisation for professionals and specialists working with performing arts heritage in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

APAC’s members include public museums, archives, and libraries; performing companies; universities; theatres; organisations; and individuals. Members meet regularly to discuss issues and exchange expertise and best practice. APAC offers an email discussion forum, symposia and study days, working groups, and collaborative projects.

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