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.

How to Join APAC

We welcome you to apply for APAC membership in 2020. Click on the yellow button below to take you to the membership form.

Once you’ve completed this form, you’ll be able to make payment for your subscription via PayPal or Debit / Credit card. If you need to pay by BACS (Bank Transfer) or need an invoice in advance to present to your finance department, there’s a place to indicate that and we’ll be in touch shortly with more information.

The window for membership payment will be November 2019 – January 2020.

After January 2020 we’ll be upgrading our website and so online payments will be suspended until the 2021 membership round.

So complete this process now to avoid disappointment!
