Scotland is Now: ‘What a great story! Drew Marr is an interesting chap’
Scotland is Now replied to a comment that I made on a video which looked at a comic book designer from Glasgow, I wrote a comment mentioning Drew Marr, featured as part of Dundee’s Young People series and Scotland is Now gave a response:
Great video! Scotland is the place of art and design indeed! ❤💙
You should check out Drew Marr, a comic book artist from Dundee, who is only 10. His comic book series is on sale not just here in Dundee, or Scotland, or the UK but even in the US! An amazingly talented Dundee youngster!
Scotland is Now response:
What a great story, thanks so much for the tip, he is definitely an interesting chap
Amazing to see inspiring Michael Glasiter on This Morning yesterday
10-year old Michael Glaister from Dundee was diagnosed with autism and was unable to talk and he had recently created a video hoping to get mugs from This Morning but what he didn’t realise was that he was invited to come down to the This Morning studios to meet presenters Phillip and Holly and got a bunch of goodies from the team and it was so amazing to watch!
‘Nervous but excited’
Andrew Batchelor, Founder & Admin of Dundee Culture
I am nervous but excited ahead of the Rotary Conference 2018. I am in the middle of practicing at the moment whilst keeping up to date on what is going on – which is why I will be ending CultureSpot Live at 11am to practice more as it is on Saturday but I look forward to sharing Dundee Culture’s story to a wider audience. Hopefully won’t be having stage fright on the day! Yikes! 😉

The impact of the Year of Young People in Dundee
The Year of Young People has been a roaring success for Scotland as the nation celebrates youngsters from all around the country.
Dundee Culture has helped play a major role in the Year of Young People by promoting stories of inspiring youngsters from in and around the city.
The series entitled Dundee’s Young People was launched in December 2017, ready for YOYP2018. So far, the stories have been incredible!
Go check them out at the Dundee’s Young People page at the top of the menu!
