    Arts Day Speakers:


    Fiveash-Stanley: Fiveash-Stanley is one of Georgia’s leading government and public affairs consulting firms.  Founded in 2000, Bryan Fiveash and Haydon Stanley bring together more than four decades of experience, relationships, and client success stories.  Bryan got his start at Atlanta Gas Light before becoming Executive Director at the Georgia Beer Wholesalers Association.  Haydon has extensive knowledge of the real estate industry, having worked for the Home Builders Association and the Apartment Association.


    Bryan and Haydon joined forces to create the firm in 2000 with an emphasis on cultivating long-term relationships.  Fiveash-Stanley continues to be ranked among the most influential consulting firms in Georgia due to its strong relationships, advocacy skills and integrity.


    Jamie Lord: Jamie has been lobbying the Georgia legislature for more than a decade. She has seen first-hand how changes in public policy can lead to changes in the lives of citizens, including the successful lobbying for several educational programs and is an advocate for the expansion of educational options for Georgia's children. She is dedicated to doing her best to make sure that actions taken by the legislature remove rather than create barriers to opportunity for Georgians. She has been actively involved in the Arts her whole life, from performing in high school theatre to participating in playwriting competitions and the 24 Hour Play Festival in Atlanta. She has a B.S. in Political Science from Georgia State University and lives in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward with her husband, young son, and a dog named Hank. 


    About Us

    The mission of the Georgia Arts Network is to strengthen, connect, and advocate for the arts in Georgia.


    The Georgia Arts Network is the voice for the arts in Georgia, and we can help you become the voice for the arts in your community. We empower you to tell your stories by providing a support network where news, information, and best practices are openly exchanged and practiced.


    Our strategy is to position arts and culture as essential to individual and public well-being and the economic development of Georgia as we advocate for the arts on the state, local, and grassroots levels.
