DUNDEE CULTURE SOCIAL MEDIA HUB
Hello! My name is Andrew Batchelor, Dundee's youngest ambassador who has studied at Harris Academy in Dundee! Dundee is my home and I am proud to be a Dundonian. I have always had an interest in my home city but in recent years have been interested in the culture in Dundee!
I started Dundee Culture back in August 2013 to originally support Dundee's UK City of Culture bid in 2017 where I posted the latest news on the bid process and spread the word out, but in the end, Hull's bid impressed the judges more and won. I originally wanted to end Dundee Culture at this point but by influence from popular demand, I continued my Facebook and Twitter pages under a new name: Dundee: A City of Culture, then to, Dundee Culture.
I think after the bid process for the UK City of Culture, Dundee Culture has been proven very popular: over 30,000 people now view Dundee Culture's Facebook page every week and both Facebook and Twitter likes and follow combine to over 10,000 likes and followers.
From the first few years of Dundee Culture, it has been amazing, I have held the Queens' Baton as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, won the inaugural Evening Telegraph Community Spirit Awards, been named as one of four young people who have ruled the tech world and in 2017, was named by Digital Leaders as one of 10 top young digital leaders. Dundee Culture is an amazing platform to show Dundee's cultures! Dundee is an amazing cultural place - so if you are wanting to visit - why not come down?

Welcome to Dundee
THE COURIER | 20 SEPTEMBER 2017
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.
