DigArt - Get stuck into The Creatives

Serial: The Last Newspaper in the World

To launch our DigArt section, BMS Books is serialising one of the books it has produced by a local author. Updated weekly and free to access.

Rotorua is a place of creation. From the mud at our feet to the steam vaporising above our heads, we live in one of the most creative places on earth.  


Our city has given rise to a number of people who have made and continue to make an impact of the creative arts in Aotearoa New Zealand.


DigArt allows you to get stuck into your favourite creative past time (obsession).
