About the Organiser


Adriana Jurczyk Duarte took her Master’s Degree in Philology at the University of Wrocław, Poland. For the last thirteen years she has spent her life on the Sunny Coast of Portugal with her husband, daughter and two dogs. She divides her life between Portugal, where she lives and Poland, which she misses. This nostalgia led her to discover and actually experience the fairy-tale therapy for herself, through writing a fairy-tale based in legends from her home village and mountains. Writing the story was her way to travel back to her home mountains, forests and rivers of beautiful southern Poland. Letting imagination run free, it made a bridge between childhood haven and her new homeland of Portugal and the magical, inspirational town of Sintra, which she fell in love with.

Creating her own fairy-tale became her therapy and helped shape her own place in Portugal, which is her cultural and touristic company ‘Moonluza’. One of Adriana’s first and dearest projects is the International Seminar on fairy-tale and Storytelling Therapy, based, of course, in Sintra….
