1. What is the change that you are trying to bring about and why is this important.

To achieve social and cultural changes in Japanese local cities, we have three points: digital archives, regional revitalization, and education of old media (photos, video film, cassette tape, etc.). thinking about. From the viewpoint of old media digital archives, digitizing old media, which records the history of the city, makes it possible to be able to be played permanently. From the perspective of regional revitalization, it is possible to discover the attractiveness of the region by conducting local surveys and literature surveys in regions (including cultural properties). From the viewpoint of education, we are considering that by experiencing literature surveys, we will be able to collect materials, select information, and cellflow to information itself.

2. Describe your main approaches or strategies to achieve these changes and why you think they will be effective.

Here are three changes. In the digital archive of old media (photos, video films, cassette tapes, etc.), research using these may proceed by digitizing even forgetful materials. In addition, from the viewpoint of regional revitalization, there is a possibility that new information buried in your own residence and hometown in Japanese society, which is being lost in the region itself, is being lost. Finally, from the viewpoint of education, we believe that we will be able to evaluate our credibility and produce new information by our own hands.

3. What are the activities you will be developing and delivering as part of these approaches or strategies?

In Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture, a wide variety of histories, culture, and people will be held in collaboration with GLAM and the government, including Wikipedia Wikidata Wikimedia Commons. Editerson aims to continue to be a continuous activity by training citizens living in Kaga and its surroundings as new Wikimedians. In order to train Wikimedian more effectively, this project will continue to hold a lecture and editing gathering for about three months. Click here for the schedule. As a result, we aim to take root in the community to record local history and culture and send it out to the outside even after the business ends. In addition, we aim to create new information value through digitalization of analog information (images and images) in Kaga city. In 2024, the Kanazawa-Tsuruga section of the Hokuriku Shinkansen will be opened, and the Shinkansen will stop in Kaga City. For this reason, we also want to enliven tourist demand and form a soil that local citizens can talk about the city. For that reason, we believe that sending information on Wikipedia and Wikivoyage is worthwhile. In particular, there is no Kaga City page in the Japanese version of Wikivoyage, so I would like to disseminate information while working with English version. In this subsidy, a video workshop joint company that collects local materials and archives in Kaga City will apply and work. In addition, we asked for the cooperation of Editerson's planning support and Wikimedian's coordinators, such as Araisyohei and Nakamata Hoshi (Kagawa Junior College), and were consent. From the above, we want to increase the awareness by providing a place to touch the Wikimedia project itself, and we want to promote this in the future.

4. Are your activities part of a Wikimedia movement campaign or event? If so, please select the relevant campaign below. If so, please select all the relevant campaigns from the list below. If "other", please state which.

Not applicable

5. Do you have the team that is needed to implement this proposal?

Yes. First of all, the video workshop joint company, which planned and operates this business, has archived the history and culture of the region for the past five years in Kaga City as an activity base. The company has a wealth of track record of operating workshops and screenings using archived materials. Next, for those who are invited as lecturers, we have a track record of planning and implementing various Wikipedia Town so far, and we are asking for coordination of the implementation program in this project. With this team structure, we have a track record of holding Wikipedia Town in Kaga City in November 2022. [1]

6. Please state if your proposal aims to work to bridge any of the identified CONTENT knowledge gaps (Knowledge Inequity)? Select up to THREE that most apply to your work.

Cultural background, ethnicity, religion, racial

6.1 In a few sentences, explain how your work is specifically addressing this content gap (or Knowledge inequity) to ensure a greater representation of knowledge.

As long as Wikipedia is used, it is desirable for participants to have basic information literacy, but it is possible that skills have individual differences. We hope that participants and operators will follow up with each other.

7. Please state if your proposal includes any of these areas or THEMATIC focus. Select up to THREE that most apply to your work and explain the rationale for identifying these themes.

Education, Culture, heritage or GLAM

8. Will your work focus on involving participants from any underrepresented communities?

Geographic , Age, Digital Access

9. Who are the target participants and from which community? How will you engage participants before and during the activities? How will you follow up with participants after the activities?

We consider Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture and its surrounding municipalities as a target. We do not have any restrictions on participation, and we want to be able to participate if we are motivated and motivated.

10. In what ways are you actively seeking to contribute towards creating a safer, supportive, more equitable environment for participants?

Yes. We will try to match the Universal Conducted Wikimedia Foundation. Regardless of the position, such as the participants and the operating staff, we aim to understand this standard and build a community that is easier for more people to live.

11. Please tell us about how you have let your Wikimedia communities know about the planned activities and this proposal. Use this space to describe the processes you carried out to make the community more involved in planning this proposal. Please link the on-wiki community discussion(s) around the proposals.

Information is transmitted to the outside through the organizer's website and SNS. This includes not only prior notice to recruit participants, but also a short report during the event and a report that summarizes the whole after the event. For internal, it will be published in [W: JA: Project: Outreach/Wikipedia Town] to recruit participants.

12. Are you aware of other Rapid Fund proposals in your local group, community, or region that are being submitted and that align with your proposed project?


If yes:

12.1 Did you explore the possibility of doing a joint proposal with other leaders in your group?
12.2 How will this joint proposal allow you to have better results?
I think we were able to achieve a larger business scale. For example, it is possible to increase the number of lectures invited to the instructor or bring participants to field work.
13. Will you be working with other external, non-Wikimedia partners to implement this proposal? Required.


13.1 Please describe these partnerships and what motivates the potential partner to be part of the proposal and how they add value to your work.

This proposal will be performed in cooperation with the Kaga City Library. The library requests the cooperation of the venue, the assistance of the selection of materials, the public relations, and the general affairs related to the operation. In addition, there is a possibility that participants will be recruited from citizens' groups related to local gravel culture, and the cooperation of materials and interviews may be obtained. We would like to plan and operate all organizations and organizations to be involved in this project, so that they can feel the fun of town development.

14. In what ways do you think your proposal most contributes to the Movement Strategy 2030 recommendations. Select a maximum of THREE options that most apply.

Learning, Sharing, and Evaluation[edit]

15. What do you hope to learn from your work in this fund proposal?

For participants, we will train logical thinking and information literacy through literature investigation and writing. The operator hopes that citizens will trigger and materialize how to engage in the local history and culture in the future. In addition, for both the participants and the operator, we hope to discover and rediscover the local charms, and to understand the universal behavioral norms to create a diversity and create a local community.
