Sister Barbara Hansen, OP - Host of NPO Showcase

GRTV has been producing NPO Showcase on LiveWire Channel 24 since February, 2002.  The show was envisioned by former GRTV Station Manager, Chuck Peterson and  originally hosted jointly by Joel VanKuiken and Dominican Sister Barbara Hansen.  Since April, 2005, Sister Barbara has been the sole host, producer and editor. As the 8th year of production ends, there have been 363 interviews.  Many of the past interviews are also available online at NPO Showcase or on Internet Archives. 

NPO Showcase is one of the many ways the Community Media Center serves the nonprofit community. For information about this and other CMC services to nonprofits or appointments for future interviews, contact our Community Outreach Coordinator, Barbara Hansen, OP, at 459-4788 x 115 or [email protected] 

Sister Barbara is a former Prioress of the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids and along with her work with the Community Media Center, she actively chairs two congregational committees: Culture of Peace and Regional Chapter of the Dominican Sisters Federation .

The Culture of Peace Committee is hosting the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Photo Poster Exhibition February 21 through March 14, 2010 . Along with the poster exhibition, there is a Film Fest at Dominican Center at Marywood and a Live Video Conference with an Atomic Bomb Survivor. Complete details of these Culture of Peace events are detailed in the Rapidian article When Time Stopped.
