Dundee Culture was set up in 2013 to originally support Dundee's UK City of Culture bid and was launched by Andrew Batchelor who was only 12, turning 13 at the time of it's launch.

Dundee Culture has been reconigsed by First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon who praised Dundee Culture's 'outstanding work' in showcasing Dundee to the world.
Dundee Culture has also been reconigsed by Young Scot, the Courier and Digital Leaders who have named Andrew Batchelor as one of the top young tech leaders in the world, a teenage prodigy and one of the top young digital leaders in the UK respectively as well as Young Scot Awards naming Andrew as one of three 'Year of Young People 2018 Champions' for his work promoting the Year of Young People in Dundee.
Now in 2018, Dundee Culture is set to launch as a business with the startup, the Dundee Culture Business Club which aims to showcase the businesses that make Dundee.
