Museums worldwide have taken a page from this new operating manual. Amgueddfa Cymru National Museum of Wales is part of Stories of the World (SOTW) – a major project for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. This unites 59 museums, libraries, and archives across the United Kingdom to create more than 35 exhibitions for 2011-12 that will reconnect museum collections with the people and communities from which they came. The SOTW project in Wales, "Bling," which examines the history of precious metals, draws on disadvantaged youths from all over the region to take the lead in creating the show. They will create connections between artifacts around the world and modern fashions.
