Ruth Weldon – Make**it Happen Producer Podcast

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

In this episode, South Australian disabled music producer Tyson Hopprich (a.k.a DJ TR!P) speaks with South Australian producer, Ruth Weldon.
