Kimonos and Khalili
A Japanese Kimono from the Khalili Collection of Kimono
The partnership between the Khalili Collections and Wikimedia UK has entered a new phase, with User:MartinPoulter being employed part-time as a Wikimedian In Residence for six months starting 13 February 2020. The project page is at w:en:Wikipedia:GLAM/Khalili and monthly reports will appear in this newsletter. The Khalili Foundation is working on the first batch of images for bulk upload. In the mean time they have shared a high-resolution image of an item from the Khalili Collection of Kimono (right). Martin has written an article about the Khalili Collection of Kimono, which will serve as a gallery of kimono images once they are available.
English Wikipedia's list of Islamic art museums has been updated with a list published by Professor Khalili, taking it from 16 entries to 76.
Andy Mabbett's residency at Coventry University continues. The University's "Disruptive Media Learning Lab", where Andy is based, hosted the Wikimedia in Education UK Summit 2020 on 26 February. At the time of writing, videos of the main sessions are being edited. Meanwhile, some open licenced photos are on Flickr.
