About the speaker
Veronica is a storyteller, fun(d)raiser and kaleidolover, passionate to transform events that can excite emotions into stories and dedicated to spread the good in the world in any form. After graduating Communication/PR and Acting her professional life wandered between writing, organising events, recording audio books and volunteering. In between she took a a leap of faith and took the opportunity to move for a year in Shanghai to study Chinese language.
Four years ago she thought she would like to be a fundraiser and this way make the world a better place so she founded minuni.ro - caleidoscop de fapte bune - kaleidoscope of good deeds, a fundraising and volunteering project that aims to empower people to donate money, time, know-how. Within the project she organizes charity events, each time for another beneficiary, her leading one being #minunipeCamino - the two 910 km walks along the north of Spain, seventy-five days of walking, a fundraising through storytelling project that raised funds for The Heart of Children and was awarded The Best Fundraising Campaign on Galantom platform at People for People Gala in November 2017.
Loving kaleidoscopes since childhood and believing they are the most beautiful objects ever invented she started crafting them three years ago, teaching others in workshops how to build them and how to shape a new perspective to look at the world. Her drive now is bringing them back to life through the manufacture of bespoke kaleidoscopes and workshops that go beyond just craft into the hidden metaphors and magic that shimmer within this optical phenomenon.
Come to meet her at Creative Mornings and listen to her talk on how making things with passion every day leads to crafting your life and how making something with love ultimately leads to making a difference.
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.
