Jon Spooner, Creative Director – Unlimited

Jon is an award winning writer, director and the Creative Director of Unlimited with whom he creates new stories and adventures for live performance and increasingly with a ‘cross platform curiosity’. In recent years his work has focussed on communicating leading edge developments in science for a family audience through the Unlimited Space Agency. Partners have included NASA and the European Astronaut Centre and the agency’s patron is Tim Peake, Britain’s first ‘official’ astronaut who will fly to the International Space Station in 2015. Jon is currently leading a major research project funded by NESTA looking at how the performing arts can better use digital technologies to publish and distribute new work. He is an associate of the Quantum Information Group at the University of Leeds, a judge for the Humans in Space Youth Art Competition and the father of two small boys.
