Between July 2022 and January 2023, the National Trust undertook a 40 day pilot scheme to enhance property-based content on Wikipedia. This involved the assessment of existing content, the enhancement of the pages for the Trust’s most visited sites, the creation of six new pages, six DYK nominations and one Good Article nomination.

Plans are underway for a potential second pilot scheme.
The sitara for the internal door of the Kaaba (pictured) was accepted as a Featured Image on Arabic Wikipedia, the eighth image from this partnership to do so, and appeared on the front page of Arabic Wikipedia as its Picture Of The Day on 30 December. This is the eighteenth Featured Image award for this partnership.
For the first time, the Khalili/Wikimedia UK partnership has held public editathon events. As part of the World Festival of Cultural Diversity, the Khalili Foundation supported two Wikipedia editathons this month, hosted by the Wellcome Collection and by Wolfson College Oxford/ the Khalili Research Centre. A total of 16 trainees, including a staff member of Wikimedia UK and a staff member of the Khalili Foundation, worked on diversifying Wikipedia's coverage of visual art. A third event is being prepared.
