Paul G. Wunuŋmurra is a Senior Research Fellow and Co-Director of the Centre for Creative Futures at Charles Darwin University.  He brings to these roles a lifelong commitment to the creative potential and social responsibilities of enlivening the past and creating new connections. He sees research as a vital opportunity to craft gifts for future generations, to share life with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and the environments to which we all belong.

A senior member of the Dhaḻwaŋu clan, Paul is an internationally experienced performer and founding member of the art collective, Miyarrka Media. Paul has co-directed several films including Manapanmirr, in Christmas Spirit (2012) and Ringtone (2014). He is the lead author of Phone & Spear: a Yuta Anthropology which was awarded the Gregory Bateson Prize in 2020 by the Society for Cultural Anthropology and an Open Access publication prize in 2021.

Paul lives in Yalakun, a small outstation close to Gapuwiyak in east Arnhem Land.
