Megan Dowsett is a freelance creative consultant working with museums and galleries.

Through the name Norris and the Flamingo, she shares the sense of adventure that runs through all of life, wherever we are on our journey. A sense of imagination, of possibility and discovery, for children and adults alike.

Her core values come down to two simple things:

People: At the heart of everything she does, people are there – be it audiences of any age or background, volunteers, staff or freelancers and apprentices. She believes that the best projects take everybody with them on a learning journey.

Creativity: In every role she’s taken, creativity has played a key priority. Working in Museums and Galleries, creativity brings a valuable opportunity to think about the same things in a different way.

Museums and galleries are the perfect place to bring the joy of discovery and magic of adventure to everyone who passes through the doors - and to invite those who haven't yet braved these sometimes intimidating buildings, to do so in a dynamic and inviting way.

Over twelve years working in these exciting settings, Megan has developed extensive experience in both managing and delivering creative projects that engage with a wide variety of audiences.

Respect to Chris Ofili!

I saw Chris Ofili for the first time when he was shortlisted for the Turner Prize. I still find it thrilling that it's creatively acceptable to like this guy who, in my opinion is more about visions of beauty and thought than about revolutionary concepts. Today my favourite room showed his twilight scenes: moments of moving through the jungle in the dark, the dark blue shadows and rustles of other people, leaves and animals crossing your path...

Anyway, watch this space, I feel like making an Ofili-esque extravaganza of my own!
