A spore is a reproductive corpuscle in fungi and the name given to a grain of pollen of certain plants, such as mosses and ferns. It is this image of the tiny seed, flying and multiplying wherever the wind takes it, that inspired the title of the magazine. A name which aptly reflects its calling to disseminate information to inspire ideas , a notion held dear by CTA ever since Spore was conceived and launched.
