PRESSplay is Amelia Luscombe and Jocelyn Tribe practicing creativity in collaboration based out of Gulumoerrgin (Darwin). PRESSplay started out as therapeutic mark making and intuitive drawing as a way to relax and take time out and has evolved into a playful partnership holding space to consider the stories we tell ourselves and narratives embedded in our cultural well being.
