INTERVIEWS

People of Faro

Time to know stories behind local people

Why are we doing it?

People of Faro explore the city through the eyes of its local people.

Faro is famous for its location, in a touristic region of Portugal, and its natural beauty. However, there is much more than that!

People of Faro explores the different elements that Faro consists of, including local people’s thoughts and images about the city they live in. There is space for exploration to result in an interview that takes a look at the local people’s perspective about the city.

We want to show what really Faro is and create connections between the city and its people and take into the surface their immense potential.
