Supporting Performing Arts Collections

The Association of Performing Arts Collections (APAC) is the Subject Specialist Network of performing arts collections in the UK and Ireland.

APAC’s members – museums, archives, libraries, organisations, and individuals – meet regularly to discuss issues, share ideas, and exchange knowledge and expertise.

APAC provides an email discussion forum, study days on specialist topics, symposia, and collaborative projects. It is the UK and Ireland affiliate of SIBMAS, the International Association of Libraries, Museums, Archives, and Documentation Centres of the Performing Arts.
