Unicaja Banco has renewed its commitment to Fundación Caja Duero for the economic support to the activities of the latter for three years. This ensures the continuity of the Foundation, as well as the implementation of its cultural programmes, focused mainly on the promotion of plastic arts, through drawing and painting lessons and photography workshops.

 

The maintenance of this support has been reflected in an agreement signed by the Chairman of Unicaja Banco, Manuel Azuaga, by the President of Fundación Caja Duero, José María de la Vega, and by the Deputy President of the Foundation, Carlos García Carbayo.

 

Since the integration of EspañaDuero in 2018, the activities of Fundación Caja Duero have had the economic support of Unicaja Banco, as reflected in an agreement to state its support to the social and cultural dimensions of this institution of foundational nature. The said agreement is now renewed and strengthened, reinforcing the commitment of Unicaja Banco to Salamanca, a commitment related to the historic presence in Castilla y Leon, one of its core regions and where the bank is a reference.

 

In early 2019, Fundación Caja Duero joined the activities developed in Castilla y Leon by the Edufinet Project on financial education, an initiative promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja. Edufinet, which has a nearly 15 years of history, was established with the goal of improving the financial literacy of the citizens, pursuant to the recommendations made by the OECD and by other national and international organisms.

 

Fundación Caja Duero started its activities in 2005 within the former Caja Duero. During this school year, more than 250 students –children and adults- receive drawing and painting lessons given at the historical building of Escuela de San Eloy. In addition to organizing photography workshops and lectures on different topics, Fundación Caja Duero safeguards and manages the museum Casa Museo Zacarías González, as well as the artistic legacy which gathers the extensive picture works of this late prestigious artist from Salamanca.

 

Furthermore, it collaborates with the chorus Coro Ciudad de Salamanca, by facilitating rehearsal halls and working spaces for this music group –originally created by the Foundation- to be able to continue providing musical education to more than 150 children, teenagers and adults.

 

Fundación Caja Duero is also the holder of Sala de San Eloy, one of the most prestigious exhibition rooms in Castilla y León, which hosts different temporary exhibitions, usually organized in collaboration with other institutions. It currently hosts the collection Terracota Warriors, which can be visited until 16 February.

 

In its 15 years of history, Fundación Caja Duero has organized a wide range of activities related to arts, music, new technologies, social studies and debate forums.
