It all started with one simple idea: How do we free the artist so they might create something the world has never seen? So often we are bound by the conventions of our lives, that we do not take a chance on the story that has lived inside us. A story that might just change one life, or many. Vast Vision Publishing was built, much like a campfire. A small idea, a kindling flame, that invited more people to share in the vision of freeing the artist and offering the support they need to tell their story. Where we place people first, as the highest value, to encourage and create a welcoming home at our fire, to earn the trust as caretakers of their creativity. We are here to publish stories, through whatever medium tells yours best, and find the means to make it possible. If you believe we can help, we are here to listen.

Kurtis Wiebe, Co-Founder

For Kurtis Wiebe, the past few years have been a series of incredible hurdles and changes, none he could have ever foreseen. Uprooting his family from Canada to pursue a career in the AAA video game industry to his current home of Stockholm, Sweden, he left the world of independence and self-employment to chase down a more stable and balanced career.

Yet, none of this would go to plan, but in the action, in the risk, he came to understand the many lessons learned in the process of trying something new. The most important takeaway, a truth that became the foundation for Vast Vision, was that there existed a pool of incredibly talented people who had yet to take a chance on their own stories. Instead, they worked, often thanklessly, for the major companies, their beautiful and innovative ideas dying in a forgotten far corner. He asked himself, “What would it take to free these amazing minds to tell their stories, to share their art, and give their voice to the world?” This is the foundation of the vision, the intent, and heart of this new venture, Vast Vision Publishing. To free artists from worry and concern, to give them the means to go out on their own and take a chance on a story that could change the world.
