Stories from Liverpool Philharmonic

Thinking about a career in the arts? Wondering whether it’s for you? We’ll be sharing stories from people right across our organisation, asking them all about their journey into the arts and what a typical day at Liverpool Philharmonic looks like for them. 


 

Adam Ghidouche 
Creative Programming Officer (Weston Jerwood Fellowship)

When I applied for my role here at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, I was starting to give up hope of ever getting a job in the music industry. I didn’t even think I would get a call back, let alone an interview. Fast forward five months, and I am fully settled in my role as Creative Programming Officer and feeling like my career is finally beginning.

2020 was a terrible year for me after my mum passed away just a few weeks before lockdown began in the UK and that combination left my head in a terrible place. I was quite lost for a while until I saw my current role listed on Arts Jobs, and the application process finally presented some light at the end of the tunnel.

Since then, I have taken full advantage of amazing opportunities to grow and develop professional skills thanks to the teams at the Phil and Jerwood Arts. Although live music only returned to our stages here in September, I have already been lucky enough to program some of my own events, working closely with cultural partners like Africa Oye and Liverpool Arab Arts Festival on brilliant projects in our Music Room.

The Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries scheme through which my role was created has been a huge kickstarter for my professional development as well. Networking with the other fellows in the scheme takes place regularly and the Jerwood team have set up important meetings for me with industry experts such as the PRS Foundation.

My role here has completely transformed my career at a time when I thought it was over before it had started. I’ve made lasting connections already during my tenure and the teams at the Phil and Jerwood have set me up with all the tools to forge what I hope will be a long and successful career in our industry. I will always look back on my time here as a positive and life-changing experience to come out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
