Christchurch Art Gallery's Speaker of the Month is Christchurch based artist Janna Van Hasselt.

In 2016, Janna participated in Scape Public Art and was a finalist in the Portage Ceramic Awards at Te Uru in Titirangi.

Janna embarked on an MFA specialising in ceramics at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Fulbright Graduate Award in 2012. Through an art history course entitled Better Homes and Gardens, she studied a series of environments created by artists working outside the mainstream. She received a Rhodes Scholarship to further her studies and visited six sites in the US and France during the spring of 2014.

Janna will give a brief background on these sites and discuss how they have influenced her own art practice.
