JuSTart was founded by Teresa Ariosto, Helga Arnalds and Nicola Visser, three successful arts professionals who had relocated to Aarhus and had to reinvent themselves. Their challenge became the source of new inspiration and an artistic drive to bring their experience with theatre, dance, visual arts, community work, diversity and disabled arts to their new home.
