What?[edit]

We are organising a Wikipedia training workshop in London to mark the 1 year anniversary of the block of Wikipedia in Turkey. We are disappointed that no progress has been made to find a solution to resolve the issue, and would like to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Turkish culture and history to show that the Wikimedia community is trying to improve both the Turkish Wikipedia as well as the coverage of Turkish culture in English.

How can you contribute?[edit]

You can expand this page with articles that need improving or creating, either in English or Turkish.

If you have photos of Turkish people, places or events, they can be a valuable contribution to illustrating articles. Consider uploading them on commons.wikimedia.org.

Why?[edit]

An encylopaedia is an important part of preserving and promoting a culture, language and history. The block on Wikipedia in Turkey means that less Open content is being created in Turkish, which is bad for the prominence of Turkish on the internet. Resources should be available for people to learn about Turkish culture and history in Turkish and in other languages.

Events[edit]
