The Bridge Review: Merrimack Valley Culture

Corey Sciuto on Facebook posted about a bioregional quiz, which prompted me to share this information about the online bioregional journal “The Bridge Review: Merrimack Valley Culture” that was published between 1997 and 2005. Five issues of the eclectic anthology were published. “The Bridge Review” branched off, so to speak, from the Flowering City Forum community dialogue site that grew from my work with then-UMass Lowell professors David Landrigan and Charles Nikitopoulos and Clementine Alexis of the Human Services Corp. of Lowell. The four of us collaborated for several years in the Building Community Through Culture program of the New England Foundation for the Arts. The web design work is by Ferney Lopez of the UMass Lowell web team. Editorial assistants included Matt Miller, Dave Robinson, and Nora Marchand. The five issues are a treasure house of creative and scholarly work from the region. You’ll see many familiar names on the Contents pages.

    There is too large a regional culture community to give up Bridge. Revive, renew, give it away. :) To the point, there isn’t another venue that serves and celebrates this regional culture community. There should be a way to shift part of the ownership and “work” to that community. Etc., etc.
