Judith Sloan is an actress, oral historian, writer, and audio artist/radio producer whose work combines humor, pathos, and a love of the absurd, and is informed by oral history. Works include Denial of the Fittest, Responding to Chaos, A Tattle Tale, and Crossing the BLVD: strangers, neighbors, aliens in a new America, a multimedia project about new immigrants and refugees written in collaboration with Warren Lehrer. Sloan has received numerous grants and awards for her work in theatre and radio-which focuses on voices often ignored by the mass media-including: awards from the Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, and New York State Council on the Arts; the Brendan Gill Prize 2004; BAXten Artists Award 2005; and the Third Coast International Audio Festival 2005, short doc competition. A frequent guest lecturer on college campuses on issues of diversity, human rights, and the arts, Sloan's work has been published by Second Story Press, W.W. Norton, and The New York Times . Her theatre and radio works have been produced throughout the U.S. and abroad at venues including La Mama, The Public Theatre, and The Smithsonian Institution, and on National Public Radio, WNYC, and listener-sponsored radio stations nationwide. She is cofounder of EarSay, a nonprofit arts organization, and directs Cross-Cultural Dialogue through the Arts, a mentorship project creating collaborations between disparate communities.
