Fixer, guide & lecturer

Organizing study trips for university students in groups varying from five to over 30 participants, Lena Odgaard uses her vast knowledge and network when introducing different aspects of the Palestinian society and the political situation and ensuring a truly unique and insightful experience. This is also the foundation of her lectures whether the target group is high school students, pensioners, religious tourists etc.

As a stringer and fixer for Danish TV crews she makes sure that their production can be carried out quick and professionally despite working in an volatile and sensitive region.

Lena Odgaard has an in depth understanding of the current political and social situation and historical background in Israel and the West Bank. She knows the area very well, has a large network and knows who to call when a permission is needed. She speaks Arabic and is therefore able to deal with authorities and talk with people in the West Bank. I worked with Lena Odgaard for four days on a documentary and I can recommend anyone to engage Lena as a reporter or stringer.
