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.

The Magic of Movement

JasmineIt's always a good challenge to undertake a more technical project with 30 6-9 year olds in one day flat. And this was no less of a challenge than usual, but we made it, thanks largely to the stoic determination of my amazing interns. Flying creatures, with wings that flap through a kind of chop-stick motion.
KhushiThe current exhibition at Orleans House, Flux Flow Flight, celebrates the capturing of movement through every form of art. With this as a basis, I remembered the butterfly puppets that flew through the puppet shows in Val Paraiso. They seemed so simple at the time!
