Dr Woolombi Waters is a Kamilaroi Aboriginal man with six children.  His PhD “Contemporary Urban Indigenous ‘Dreamings’: interaction, engagement and creative practice,” documents surviving Kamilaroi epistemologies essential to cultural maintenance and trans-generational pedagogy. A published playwright screenwriter and academic, Woolombi is the Convener of Screenwriting at Griffith University having won the Griffith University Excellence in Teaching Award. My writing engineers a hypothetical cultural and creative third space in reinventing the Indigenous position beyond its current binary – in wanting to picture events over time and space around me, in returning to the past and seeing my future, to remember the sound of ceremony before the impending silence broken by colonisation.
