Famous Art Robberies card game crop

Interested in art crime and antiquities trafficking?

Want to learn more in a fun, interactive online course?

February 1 sees the start of a brand new online course taught by researchers from the University of Glasgow’s Trafficking Culture project.

Sign up by the end of January and tweet to let us know (including #ArtCrimeFL) for the chance to win one of four sets of Kulturmeister’s Famous Art Robberies cards – a top trumps-style game featuring key facts about 32 of the most notorious arts robberies of all times.

Antiquities Trafficking and Art Crime asks how we can protect our heritage from theft, illegal sale, and destruction. The course will use case studies, videos and activities ranging from a debate about street art to a game of “guess the fake”.

The course will be led by antiquities trafficking expert Donna Yates, who will also host a series of Google hangouts to interact with learners. No previous knowledge of art history, archeaology or criminology is necessary, and participants can progress at their own pace.

For more information and to sign up, see the FutureLearn website. Four winners will be selected at random from the course’s registered learners, and contacted via Twitter by February 4.
