She has appeared on Comedy Central and PBS and is a member of the faculty at Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU where she teaches Oral History and Interdisciplinary Arts, and advises students on projects that cross the boundaries between artist and scholar. Sloan has been a guest performer and lecturer at Dartmouth College, Columbia University, Yale University, SUNY Purchase, University of Hawaii, University of Massachusetts, among others. She conducts workshops for teachers on immigration and diversity, in using theatre arts with young people, (in the classroom and on stage) and performs and teaches from time to time in New York City schools, youth correctional facilities and jails. She is the director of Cross-Cultural Dialogue Through the Arts, an arts mentorship and training program creating collaborations between disparate communities that grew out of EarSay’s Crossing the BLVD project. She is currently consulting with several organizations, training teachers and caregivers about interviewing refugees and people at risk. Sloan has been working with immigrant and refugee teenagers, many who come from war-zones, since 1998. Her work at the International High School at LaGuardia Community College in Queens garnered her the Partnership in Education Award in June 2009. In September 2009, Sloan started a new initiative Transforming Trauma Into Art, to provide theatre, music, and hip hop education to teenagers from war-zones and immigrant youth who have been displaced by natural disasters and poverty. The program provides an internship opportunity for college students and emerging teaching artists. She received a special Civil Rights award from the CUNY Law School for her work on A Tattle Tale: eyewitness in Mississippi for revealing issues of misconduct and brutality in the Mississippi Jails in the 1990s.
