RED DEER (CP) Seeing the arts as "frills" for wealthy people with plenty of leisure time is "a tragic observation; Culture Minister Horst Schmid said Friday. He told delegates to the arts and provincial conference that the conference was not a policy making session. "It is not an effort by the department of culture, youth and recreation to give some sort of rubber stamp approval to existing or proposed programs, but to find out from the delegates what the department is doing well, and what they can do better. "For a long time too many of us looked upon the arts as frills fine for people with lots of money and leisure time but not really for the hard- working Albertans, "If I cannot convince you that this is a tragic observation, then I have missed my calling for the last .three Mr. Schmid said. The conference, which ends Sunday, has drawn about 675 delegates to Red Deer. Sessions include such things as an architect and theologian discussing the artistic design of churches; a panel discussion on whether art should be a core subject or an option in school; George Moore of the Banff centre and Frank La Fleche of the federal industry and commerce department discussing opportunities in the arts for independent businessmen; and a university educated circus clown conducting a workshop on the invention of religious art forms.
