Liubou Minniyeva – editor world music and organizer open house

My editing job entails more than coordinating the world music programs. I also place all relevant information pertaining to world music on the website and provide PR for the Concertzender at other radio stations.

In April I joined the CZ as a volunteer. After a one-month trial period I was promoted to coordinator. I used to dream of a job with a radio station or other media. Now that dream has come true!!

Aside from my volunteer job with the CZ I work for the world famous Booking.com company.

Before that I worked as a journalist and took a course in mass media and communications. I have an MD in economy and management. I have worked for many large companies, such as Amphenol and Aimex Communications, for whom I worked in sales.

Recently I have come to realize that I want to work in the cultural sector, especially the arts and media. That is why I am now taking a BA. In a year or so I want to start my own company: Liubou Minniyeva Curating. This company will act as an intermediary between artists and companies, galleries, media, etc. My work will have many different facets, including:

  • producing projects and expositions
  • fundraising  
  • managing budgets

I believe that the Concertzender has a great deal of potential. Not only because it is an old and venerated radio station, but because of its ability to survive.
I spend my free time pursuing the following:

  • flamenco
  • art
  • photography
  • radio
  • making programs
