Joana Fins Faria
ARTIST AND Chief Talent Officer, City of Porto
A renaissance woman on a mission, Joana Fins Faria is the chief talent officer for the city of Porto. After studying marketing in Budapest and San Francisco, she returned to her home country of Portugal to deepen her knowledge of human psychology. Her Master of Expressive Arts Therapy from the European Graduate School inspired her to explore a multi-arts approach to building compassionate, culturally-sensitive, and supportive relationships with others.
She is passionate about her work of interlinking the human potential in the city of Porto with arts, aesthetics, and creativity. At the House in Lisbon in November, she will be sharing her understanding of beauty, arising from “the imperfection, the impermanent, and the incomplete.”
