Say farewell to  Canada’s largest  arts advocacy  agency.

The Canadian Conference of the Arts is winding down operations after 67 years because its federal funding has been cut.

A statement from the CCA says it  will cease operations tomorrow   after the Harper government denied its request for two years of interim funding while it makes a transition to a new self-sustaining financing model.

The organization was founded in 1945  by a group of artists, including painter Lawren S. Harris of the Group of Seven .

The CCA has about 200 members, including arts groups such as the Royal Conservatory of Music, the Banff Centre, the Writer’s Union of Canada, Actor’s Equity and the National Theatre School.
