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.

Its members – museums, archives, libraries, organisations, and individuals – meet regularly to discuss issues and share ideas and information.

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