The topic of art crime has been of great interest to many members since 2013 when Judge Arthur Tompkins first presented his lecture, Stealing Beauty: Art Crime during War, to the Friends of Te Papa. Many subsequent radio interviews and a Continuing Education course earlier this year have ensured a growing following. Now is your opportunity to hear more about this fascinating topic.

The New Zealand Art Crime Research Trust presents its inaugural Art Crime Symposium at the City Gallery in Wellington on Saturday 19 September 2015.

This ground-breaking symposium will examine different aspects of art crime and cultural heritage protection, both in New Zealand and in a wider context, through a range of specialist presenters and panel discussions.

Full details of the programme, speakers and how to book can be found on the symposium’s website.
