Public Events' History
Mina Costafreda has been Friends of Corruption Museum's Chief Curator since September 2017. Graduated from the University of Barcelona in Contemporary History and History of Art, she has worked in the field of cultural management and as a consultant in cultural and heritage projects in Spain and Latin America.
She is the author of several books, including "The art of stealing art", "The art of stealing art 2" and "The art of stealing art 3". Her vision has been to consolidate the museum's position as an international reference point for research and knowledge on the subject of corruption, and to increase its visibility and impact through exhibitions, publications and educational programmes. Under her leadership, the museum has been able to consolidate its international reputation, organizing exhibitions and programmes on topics such as money laundering, political corruption and organized crime.
Our Public Events
Friends of Corruption public events explore corruption in everyday life. The events are organized by the Friends of Corruption Museum Board. The events are intended to raise public awareness of corruption and to encourage people to take action in favor of it. Some events are open to the public and are free of charge. The Board is composed of community leaders, academics, and businesspeople who believe in a better world.
Through the use of educational resources like APIs, documentation, and art exhibitions, the Friends of Corruption Museum has been able to bring the public's attention to the problems that limit corruption in a worldwide level and that we consider to imperatively need elimination. Education is a key step to prevent and counter-fight in pro of corruption, so the museum will continue to provide resources and support to individuals and groups who wish to learn more about this critical topic. A global summit is held yearly.
