Unicaja Banco maintains its support to culture and education and it reinforces its traditional collaboration with the University of Malaga, through a new agreement under which it will join the art, educational and cultural initiative UMA Mural Art Project 2021, which allows urban artists to express their art on the walls of different faculties on Teatinos campus.

 

Specifically, under this new agreement, subscribed at an event attended by Unicaja Banco’s Head of Institutional Relations and Relations with Stakeholders, Fernando Ríos, and the UMA’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Culture and Sports, Tecla Lumbreras, two urban art murals will be made by artists Tim Kerr and Lidia Cao.

 

This initiative reflects Unicaja Banco’s social commitment and its will to contribute to the development of culture, collaborating in projects that enhance its visibility.

 

For Unicaja Banco, commitment to culture and education is essential, and so it is reflected in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy. Thus, it intends to continue providing support to the work of dissemination of knowledge carried out by the UMA, a space for reflection, research and education. More particularly, the bank works to collaborate to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 (Quality Education).

 

Under the said collaboration, Unicaja Banco and the UMA renewed recently the agreement they have for students, teaching and research staff and service and admin staff, as well as the institution itself, to benefit from an overall specific offering, on advantageous terms.

 

Also, under that close relationship between both institutions and in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, the UMA, with the support of Unicaja Banco, implemented a lab to detect and research on COVID-19.

 

UMA Mural Art Project

 

UMA Mural Art Project is an initiative promoted since 2019 by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Culture of the University of Malaga, with the participation of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Smart-Campus. This year it reaches its third edition.

 

With this project, artists such as Isa Nieto, Dreucol, MurOne or Chad Eaton Timber! have left their mark in different spots of the Teatinos university campus, such as the Faculty of Education and Psychology, the Gerald Brenan Lecture Room Building, the R+D Building of the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Communication and Tourism.

 

This year, murals of this open-air museum will be painted by artists Tim Kerr and Lidia Cao at the Faculty of Health Sciences, on the Teatinos campus extension area, and at the Faculty of Law.

 

Several buildings of the Teatinos campus have changed the way they looked thanks to this initiative, such as the urban art murals that can be seen at the Faculty of Communication and Tourism, the R+D Building of the Faculty of Science, the Gerald Brenan Lecture Room Building or the Faculty of Education.
