Membership of the Association of Performing Arts Collections is open to any institution or corporate body in the United Kingdom and Ireland concerned with the acquisition, preservation, documentation, and display of material relating to any branch of the performing arts. Interested individuals and students are also welcome to join APAC.

Two Membership Levels

  • National: You become a member of APAC and receive APAC’s benefits. National membership is open to institutions, individuals, and students in the UK and Ireland.
  • International: You become a member of both APAC and SIBMAS, the International Association of Libraries, Museums, Archives and Documentation Centres of the Performing Arts. You receive the benefits of both associations. It is advantageous to join SIBMAS through APAC’s international option because the APAC membership secretary handles all the membership administration and Euro exchange. So, only one invoice for you to process.
