Jannie Pallesen


I am originally educated as a ‘visual anthropologist’ – in more understandable words – as a documentary filmmaker specialized in cultural differences. Later on I studied a master in journalism, and since I am both a journalist and a filmmaker, it made sense to work in the Danish TV industry, making TV documentaries for broadcast television, So I did. Until I became aware of this wonderful place called International People’s College, and I started working here.

I am in charge of the PR & Communication at IPC, stealing IPC-moments to post on social media, updating the webpage, making brochures and other – mostly more geeky – tasks. But other than that I am also teaching journalism / Exploring Denmark at the school.

My private life consist mainly of taking care of my baby toddler, Henry, hosting dinners, bicycling, and Netflixing (of course). And then I love walking for hours listening to sound books and podcasts.
