Rhen Soggee – Make **it Happen Producer Podcast

One of our latest Access2Arts projects, the ‘Making **it Happen’ Producer Podcasts, saw us interviewing some fantastic South Australian disability arts producers about their experiences to gain a better understanding of what the industry currently looks like.

You can learn more about our ‘Making **it Happen’ Producer Podcasts project on our projects page here, alongside other producers we have interviewed.

In this episode, South Australian disabled music producer Tyson Hopprich (a.k.a DJ TR!P) speaks with producer Rhen Soggee. Rhen is a white migrant currently living and working on unceded Kaunra Yerta. They are a non-binary, neurodiverse arts manager interested in contemporary, multicultural, inter/multi-disciplinary and participatory arts.

They seek to affect social change through the arts, specifically with multicultural, intersectional, feminist and queer agendas. Rhen works with community arts and cultural development values. They delved into arts management to facilitate conversations, experiences and understanding through arts, underpinned by an ideal to foster better cross-cultural exchange in arts and beyond. They believe that immersive, participatory and challenging (multi)arts experiences can help us to reflect on who we are, how we are and how we interact, affect and are affected by the world around us.

They are currently Senior Manager, Arts Programs at Carclew, an Arts Wellbeing Collective’s Lived Experience Advisory Group member, Chair of Post Office Projects Board, Board member of Vitalstatistix and completing both their AICD accreditation and MFA in Cultural Leadership at NIDA.
