Verista’s mission is to support the education and development of individuals and groups who exemplify the values of freedom of expression.
Our activities are to provide training, materials, facilities, and financial and technical support, 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:
- The development of a center for kilnformed glass to carry on the legacy of Charles Holden, in Decatur, GA. The studio provides space for workshops, collaboration and individual projects.
- Support for Afghan journalists and educators, whether inside or outside the country, in their work to factually report events and educate citizens in Afghanistan.
