ESEAP Conference 2022
ESEAP Conference 2022 was the second regional conference for Wikimedia communities throughout the ESEAP region. ESEAP stands for East, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific. The conference took place in Sydney, Australia from 18 to 20 November 2022, and was the second regional conference for these Wikimedia communities. The theme for the 2022 conference is ESEAP 2022:Reconnect!. Reflecting the desire of community members to renew collaborations, reconnect after the 2018 conference and several virtual conferences in the last 2 years.
East and Southeast Asia and the Pacific is a developing region within the Wikimedia community. There is a significant number of Wikimedia contributors across the regions, and we have grown the community since our first meeting in 2018 and continue to work towards establishing a well-managed hub. This conference will bring participants from various ESEAP communities together to strengthen collaboration and better understand the issues faced in the region and to look for solutions.
ESEAP will be hosting Wikimania 2023, the first in-person Wikimania post-Covid. Following on from the last Wikimania in 2020, this conference will bring the Core Organising Team for Wikimania 2023 together to help design Wikimania for the post COVID and climate impacted world.
Our last ESEAP regional meeting was hosted by Wikimedia Indonesia in Bali in 2018, and a successful ESEAP Strategy Summit was held in Bangkok in June 2019. A lot has changed since then so we aim to re-connect people of the Wikimedia movement within the ESEAP region, to share ideas, and to build regional collaborations.
