CrossBridge Journal April 2017

CrossBridge is a multidisciplinary and thought provoking cross-over between peer-reviewed academic journal, public affairs magazine, and visual art/literary review. Steven Johnson in Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation (2011) wrote that spaces that allow “collision of creativity” between people of different backgrounds facilitates innovation. CrossBridge aims at being such a space.
