Abstract [en]

This paper takes its point of departure in the understanding of culture as something we as human beings share and have in common. Culture is what makes us human beings (Geertz 1973). The Örebro regional plan addresses “culture for all” as a question of societal inclusion. As such “culture” is set within the frames of institutional settings. The objective of the paper is to contribute to the understanding of culture as tool for an inclusive society with an overall ambition to address the call for “culture for all”, its complexity as well as its societal and political dimensions. The paper inquires into what social identities, or subject positions, are constructed in the Örebro regional plan for culture. The question builds on the assumption of text, or discourse, as a social practice (Fairclough 1992). The result of this text analysis points to the assumption of an inclusive society, where the citizens share the same values and ideals. This assumption provides a common ground for the cultural activities that are recognized in the regional program. When difference is introduced as an analytical tool, social identities as gender, social class, age and ethnicity come into focus. An overall conclusion is that in addressing ”all” traditional values and norms are reproduced within dominating structures that open for sameness but close for difference.
