WHO, Talents Agency

WHO is the first creative talent agency in Portugal. At present, it is the only Portuguese agency involved in the exclusive promotion and management of freelance artists.

The agency also manages an online domain/portal dedicated to presenting national and international creative portfolios.

WHO was established in 1999 by Ema Ceveira at a time when there was little support available to new and emerging artists. The majority of local artists lacked job opportunities, marketing, promotion and arts management. WHO was conceived in response to their needs and for the past 10 years, has been providing support and a variety of permanent arts management solutions.
