Verista’s mission is to support the education and development of individuals who exemplify the values of freedom of expression.
Our activities are to provide training, materials, facilities, and financial and technical support to individuals and organizations, with special emphasis on giving voice to the voiceless, on three-dimensional media, and on collaborative and therapeutic efforts across media.
Our vision has always been to amplify a multitude of voices so that deeper truths emerge. The earliest example of this was the exhibit “Beyond the Mountains: The Interior Life of Afghanistan.”
Verista’s current projects are:
- Support for Afghan journalists, whether inside or outside the country, in their work to factually cover the unfolding events in Afghanistan.
- The development of a center for glass artists in honor of Charles Holden, in Decatur, GA. The studio will provide space for workshops, collaboration and individual projects.
