Bénincultures is a francophone site dedicated to cultural products related to and originating in Benin. The site amalgamates news, a library of pertinent articles and publications, a directory of cultural producers in the country, a list of initiatives, a “tv” page with stories about the unfolding of current cultural projects, and information about a prize awarded annually.
Current highlights include Création Artistique : Dans La Fabrique De Dominique Zinkpè, a space that incorporates work by welders, carpenters, sculptors, and decorators in one space. Le Kleenex Qui Tue : Hermas Gbaguidi, Une Dramaturgie De La Vertu, a collection of four plays exploring the role of virtue in consumer society.
The site is maintained by a non-profit, “Les Editions Plurielles.”
