About

Surabaya offers an eclectic mix of interests for everyone, from notable happenings, unique regional food, to heritage areas.  Regrettably, despite the potentials and availability of relatively accessible media these days, there is still a disconcerting lack of experimentations in documenting this city.  Throughout December 2011, Hifatlobrain Travel Institute, in collaboration with the C2O Library, will be conducting an an artist-in-residence program by inviting  Herajeng Gustiayu, an illustrator-traveller from Jakarta, to produce a series of watercolour illustrations about Surabaya, later to be developed into an illustrated travel guide.  By inviting a non-local artist, this program will hopefully initiate fresh perspectives about the city, encourage collaborations among Surabaya communities, and thus expand our horizons and networks.  

Surabaya memiliki banyak hal menarik yang bisa dijajaki, mulai dari ragam kuliner, wisata budaya, hingga kawasan kota lama. Sayangnya selama ini tidak ada eksplorasi dalam proses dokumentasinya. Selama bulan Desember 2011, Hifatlobrain Travel Institute bekerja sama dengan Perpustakaan C2O mendatangkan Herajeng Gustiayu, seorang illustrator-traveller dari Jakarta , untuk menghasilkan satu seri ilustrasi cat air tentang Surabaya yang akan dikembangkan menjadi sebuah illustrated travel guide. Hadirnya seniman luar kota akan memberi kita sudut pandang yang berbeda. Herajeng akan merasakan atmosfer kota, sekaligus bertemu dan berkolaborasi dengan berbagai komunitas Surabaya.
