Our Twitter page was created a month after the launch of the Facebook page but originally did not grow support until November 2013 where thousands of people started to follow us on Twitter.

Our Facebook page gives the latest updates, news and pictures from the city of Dundee and the cultural aspect to it. The Facebook page was the first of the three Dundee Culture media sites to be established in 2013 to originally support Dundee's UK City of Culture bid team. On average, 12,000 to 25,000 people view the Facebook page every week and is continuing to grow in likes.

DUNDEE CULTURE'S SOCIAL MEDIA HUB

WHAT IS DUNDEE CULTURE?

A CITY OF CULTURE.

HELLO, I'M ANDREW BATCHELOR

Dundee Culture is a hub to all things cultural in Dundee. A Facebook page was launched on August 12, 2013 to originally support Dundee's bid for the UK City of Culture in 2017 by Andrew Batchelor, who is a 16-year old from Dundee. The page was originally titled Dundee City of Culture 2017, but after the bid process it was re-titled, Dundee: A City of Culture.

The Dundee bid officials thought the Facebook page was a work of a university student, but they didn't realise it was the work of a 12-year old at the time. Andrew joined the official bid team and continued to post on the bid and the updated news for the bid.


I'm the  creator and owner of Dundee Culture. I am a 16-year old teenager who lives in Dundee. I am Dundee's youngest ambassador too, I have also won the Young Award at the Evening Telegraphs' Community Spirit Awards and I have held the Queen's Baton during the Queen's Baton Relay when it came to Dundee on 27 June 2014 and in December 2015, I was named as one of four individuals to be featured in Young Scot's "Young People Who've Ruled The Tech World" in which it features the story about me with Dundee Culture!


I love Dundee, it is an amazing, cultural and creative city with many exciting things to look forward to in the future. As a city, Dundee has achieved being the first city in the United Kingdom to have a UNESCO City of Design status, it has been voted one of the world's smartest cities, very successful universities and colleges along with beautiful landscaping too


Dundee is a city of culture and is a city that is looking towards the future!
