As an educator she has over a decade of international experience in teaching masterclasses, guest speaking, leading outreach projects, conducting youth orchestras, and serving on juries and artistic committees.

The banks that joined forces to found UniCredit Group have a long tradition in promoting local culture and artistic events in the countries in which it operates. This commitment is evidenced by the extensive art collection of UniCredit Group and dozens of initiatives within UniCredit & Art Project. We believe that culture is always the engine of local economic development through its ability to sustain innovation and stimulate science economy.
Since we are very close to the communities in which we operate, we try to maintain a close relationship with them by encouraging all initiatives that contribute to their cultural enrichment. Thus, we support cultural diversity and offer support to projects in the area of music, literature, film, and visual arts.
The cultural-artistic component of the bank’s sustainable development strategy is materialized in our involvement in long-term partnerships. Our collaborators and partners include NGOs, cultural institutions, academies, curators, and artists.
The story began to take life in the spring of 2011, specifically in June when we found the perfect location for the coworking space: Pitesti no 19.
It took almost 2 years for the whole process of building the brand, space, segmentation, filtering the capacities and services that ClujHub could offer. After a lot of work and creativity, we managed to create a space a brand and bring together a group of people that encompass all the feelings and emotions that are out values here at ClujHub.
After 5 years, in 2017, we felt that it’s time to move on. To move on to a bigger, better, more central location! We are excited to introduce you the hottest coworking space in town, ClujHub Central, a professional, high-quality, creative and collaborative working environment that optimizes workflow and maximizes productivity.

It comes completely fitted with: closed office spaces for teams; open-floor coworking space; meeting rooms; event rooms that can host from 30 up to 250 people; urban garden; mindfulness area; coffee lounge; library.
