Conference Bursary for APAC members now available!


The APAC (Association for Performing Arts Collections) Executive Committee would like to offer one £200 conference bursary for an APAC member to attend the International Conference Performing the Archive, held at NUI Galway, between 22-24 July 2015.

APAC Ex-Com felt that this major conference held by our APAC member in Galway would be of interest to some of you and that we should provide an opportunity for those of you interested in the conference and its programme, but who may not be able to raise the necessary funds.

The bursary:

£200 is the amount awarded towards the cost of attending the conference and may be used for travel, accommodation, conference fee, etc. Unfortunately APAC is unable to cover any further costs above £200.

To qualify:

Applications are open to APAC members only and need to be submitted to Ramona Riedzewski ( by Thursday, 18 June, 12noon.

No more than one person from an APAC institutional member can apply.

To apply:

Please submit the requested details by email. There is no form to complete.

In order to apply for the APAC conference bursary, please submit the following information by email:

  • Your name
  • APAC membership (please state, whether you are an individual member or your organisation):
  • Give a brief outline (no more than 300 words), why you would like to attend the conference, including how attendance at the conference helps your own interest/research/personal development.

Selection process:

The APAC Ex-Com will review received applications and make a decision by Tuesday, 23 June. We will then be in touch with all applicants informing them of the decision and allow the successful applicant sufficient time to make travel arrangements.


The successful candidate is expected to prepare a newsletter article for the APAC newsletter and if possible to give a brief update at one of the next APAC meetings.

In addition, it would also be preferable, if the successful candidate might be able to tweet and/or send facebook updates during the conference, in order to keep other APAC members, who are not able to come to the conference, informed.
