Building infinite universes

We invite you to participate in the 8th Annual FILustra, the specialist forum for illustrators, students and professionals interested in the publishing sector.

Illustrators face different obstacles in their professional development, such as finding appropriate academic training, getting work opportunities, receiving fair pay, or putting on an art exhibition, among others. However, it also offers advantages that few professions do, such as creating worlds that don’t exist, giving a voice and identity to animals, exploring and breaking barriers, dreaming up endearing characters and overcoming fears. In a nutshell, illustrators develop the capacity to build infinite universes.

In this program made up of conferences, consultancy, practical workshops and roundtables, you will learn about the experiences of renowned illustrators and publishers from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Spain, Morocco, Mexico, Portugal, UK, Switzerland, Taiwan, Uruguay and Venezuela. The diverse backgrounds and voices of the illustrators this year will inspire and empower your work in the illustration world.
