The MMEA is a not-for-profit special area group of the Manitoba’s Teacher Society. It represents music educators across Manitoba including the Manitoba Band Association, Manitoba Choral Association, Manitoba Classroom Guitar Association, and Manitoba Orff Chapter.
The goal of the poster (which will be displayed in all Manitoba schools as of this Fall) and newspaper ad is to help raise awareness of the value of quality music programs in our Manitoba schools, to help promote the value of music education in Manitoba, to encourage lifelong learning, and to highlight the value of music and arts in our lives.
With the approval of the committee, The FaQtory wrote the headline “The Sweet Sound of Success”, coordinated a photo shoot of several prominent Manitobans, and incorporated the main message that “Active participation in music enhances quality of life, personal growth, leadership skills, physical and mental health, and the pursuit of excellence.” Click here to see the final result.
