This preface attempts to give a brief overview of Bridges for Teachers, Teachers for Bridges (BTTB) workshop papers while reflecting on their place in a broader setting of teaching and learning mathematics as a creative activity. BTTB 2007 papers provide an eclectic collection of inspiring ideas of mathematics and art interplay. This collection can be clustered in many different ways. The way selected here is considering mathematics as: creative transitioning between dimensions, a study of artful patterns, inquiry, and connections within and outside of mathematics.
