At the end of 2021, the Khalili Foundation published a book on the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity. This has been used to improve various Wikipedia articles, especially UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity, which was expanded sixfold and has now passed DYK review, to appear on English Wikipedia's home page on 5th June. This is the twentieth DYK to come from this project.
On May 2, the Talismanic Shirt appeared on the front page of English Wikipedia as the Featured Picture of the Day, where it was shown to potentially 5.1 million people. I have continued adding categories to images on Commons and adding statements on Wikidata. Khalili Collections images are now visible in 1067 categories (57 more than a month ago); the new categories include Islamic candlesticks, 8th-century metalwork, Al-Ahzab, and Dolphins in art. The number of "uncategorised" images (with just one category tag) decreased from 179 to 138.
I have continued making minor improvements to Islam-related articles on Wikipedia, including Paul Lucas (traveller), Sahih al-Bukhari and Al-Baqi Cemetery. No new images were uploaded this month, apart from three cropped/edited versions of previously-uploaded images. The BaGLAMa tool reports that 305 pages on English Wikipedia now use Khalili Collections images.
The article on the Dar al-Kiswa has been put up for Good Article review and is awaiting a reviewer.
