Tell me about the history of Dundee Culture
Dundee Culture is run by me! My name is Andrew Batchelor, Dundee's youngest ambassador and one of the top ten youngest digital leaders named in the United Kingdom. I started Dundee Culture in 2013 at just 12 years of age to originally support Dundee's UK City of Culture bid for 2017. I created a Facebook page to show my support for Dundee's bid and it was seen by the official bid team days later who thought the page was created by a university student.

Dundee unfortunately did not win the UK City of Culture for 2017 but this was only the beginning for Dundee Culture as it has went on to help promote Dundee on a wider scale and has won several awards throughout the five years Dundee Culture has existed. 

My inspiration for creating Dundee Culture in the first place was from my auntie who sadly passed away – she had a real love and bond for Dundee and that passed on me as she took us over the city – from the Discovery to the Dundee Law, that shown me what a beautiful place Dundee was.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership platform that provides business tools for creators, like myself, to run a subscription content service, with ways for creators to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons."

As Patreon is a US based company, this is why the fee paid is in US Dollars.

VAT (Value Added Tax) is a consumption-based tax that’s assessed on the value added to goods and services -- including digital. It’s charged as a percentage of price (so on Patreon, a $1.00 pledge with 23% VAT will have a final cost of $1.23).

Conversion rate: 7th January 2019 USD = GBP:
  • $1 plus VAT  $1.23 = $2.23 which equates to £1.75
  • $5 plus VAT $1.15 = $6.15 which equates to £4.82
  • $10 plus VAT $2.30 = $12.30 which equates to £9.59
  • $20 plus VAT $4.60 = $24.60 which equates to £20.20
  • $50 plus VAT $11.50 = $61.50 which equates to £47.97
  • $100 plus VAT $23.00 = $123.00 which equates to £95.94

Why is Dundee Culture on Patreon?
I have been doing Dundee Culture for nearly six years now - and have done as a hobby but I want to expand out and make it as my full-time career. Dundee Culture is now at a point where more people are following me promoting Dundee to the rest of the world and I am needing support to help Dundee Culture succeed in the future as well as making an income for myself as I am doing this off my own back. I want to make it a success and without the support, I wouldn't manage to do it!

What will my money be going towards?
Money that is donated to Dundee Culture through Patreon will go to helping Dundee Culture expand further into the future. With the money donated, I will be able to maintain Dundee Culture's websites and social media sites, create new campaigns, get more resources and have the ability to boost Dundee's presence through Dundee Culture as well as making an sustainable income for myself.
