about us

Based in Petaling Jaya, Impress Creative & Editorial is deeply committed to supporting inventive and progressive cultural production, publication, distribution and exhibition both in Malaysia and internationally. Although there are many strands to our work - including music, film, photography and books - they are all combined in a celebratory approach to the arts and culture.

Impress seeks to generate and champion artists and producers who are at the forefront of intercultural creativity. Drawing on years of experience Impress's promise to our artists, clients and partners is to work collaboratively and professionally to deliver quality and value, as well as a vision of a better society.

Impress also draws on an established network of practioners, designers, critics, promoters, journalists, arts managers, event organisers and academics whom it engages on a consultancy basis to suit our clients' needs.

Recent collaborations have included projects with Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS, the National Film Development Corporation, Suasana Cultural Centre, SIRD/Gerakbudaya, Areca Books and Provectus.
