Jon Spooner


Creative Director

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’. Unlimited’s current project is a future sci-fact space adventure “to inspire children about science” that appears as a major stage show, an adventure in schools played through bespoke (and secure) social networking sites and as a game for families to play in public spaces and at festivals. The project has been nominated for the Sir Arthur Clarke Award for Achievement in Space Education & Outreach and versions for different platforms/mediums are currently in development. Jon is an associate of the Quantum Information Group at the University of Leeds and the father of two small boys.

John was a speaker in the “Sell Out” session at the 2011 Conference
