She has an interdisciplinary background, having studied Music at the University of Oxford as an undergraduate and Socio-Cultural Anthropology at Durham University as a Masters student. Since graduating, Annelise has gained experience in a number of cultural organisations across the UK and abroad, including Verbier Music Festival (Switzerland), the British Council (India), Danish Cultural Institute (Denmark) and Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle.
