Semarang International Illustration Festival (SIIF) is a biennial event that showcases the best illustrator artworks from across countries.The first Semarang International Illustration Festival was held in 2017. Through this event, the committee has successfully gathered more than 100 illustrators from 18 countries to participate as contributors to this exhibition. The exhibition have received positive response from various parties, both from practitioners, academics, students and the government.
In 2019 this event will be held again by Visual Arts Department Universitas Negeri Semarang - Indonesia. The main theme of SIIF 2019 is "eARThvironment". Through this editorial, we invite illustrators to respond to environmental issues that threaten the sustainability of human life in the future. The changes that occur in the relationship between humans and environment can be seen from the complexity of the problems that arise; the population explosion, inadequate integration between the dominance of technology with environmental needs, the destruction of cultivation land, and the increasing danger of extinction of animals and plants. Through this event, we invite illustrators to convey messages, hopes, choices, and efforts to support the continuation of a good life on earth. Not only express it into illustration artworks from an environmental point of view, but also from a social and cultural point of view.
