Arts and Culture Programming: Sydney Mahoney

Growing up in Unalaska, Sydney spent much of her childhood at the Community Center taking part in classes like archery, loom knitting, painting, piano lessons, and photography. After graduating from Unalaska City High School, Sydney spent her college years on the Big Island of Hawai‘i pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. During this time, she took classes in songwriting, theater, music and many other performing arts fields.

Once completed, Sydney knew it was time to return home. As the new Arts and Culture Coordinator, she hopes to foster a creative spirit within Unalaska and provide programming to reflect the needs of the many cultures represented within this diverse community. Sydney welcomes outside input and encourages everyone to communicate how the PCR can offer programming that fits their needs.

Outside of work, Sydney enjoys songwriting, hiking with her dog, fishing, surfing, and making the best chocolate chip cookies in the world.
