Stephanie Pierzchala

Stephi arrived to join the team from Berlin in October 2015. Building on her extensive experience with Deutsche Welle Akademie she is now supporting both our Griot Creative Projects and our Peoples Voice work with participatory video.

 Stephi trained as an audiovisual media designer. Combining her professional expertise with strong language, intercultural and pedagogical skills, she has mostly worked on international development projects in Africa: helping professionals to improve their camerawork, editing and storytelling skills,  empowering them to tell authentic and inspiring “African Stories“. Stephi also helped develop a TV youth news pilot in Namibia, based on content she animated her self. She spends her free time in nature and is currently working on her own second feature length documentary.
