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.

Jungle Collograph

Jungle Collograph 002 This is the result of one of those lucky moments, hopefully familiar to us all, where in the excitement of a reasonably new discovery, we embark on a massively ambitious project. Dream about it day an night, injure our necks from leaning over it 12 hours a day, and suddenly realise when we've nearly finished that this was really rather stupid because it will probably all go horribly wrong. Well it didn't go horribly wrong, thank goodness. Inspired by the dense foliage of Ecuadorian Jungle, this is a work in progress, with a happy start!
