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.

Pop-Up Madness

DSC_0035A fantastic day with an amazing bunch of 9-14s exploring pop-up. After going technical in the morning, learning how to create a range of folds, wheels and other surprises, we took to the spontaneity of collage in the afternoon before turning our extravagant backdrops into 3D scenes through pop-up.DSC_0030
These are the works, from top to bottom, of Isabella, Jesse and Andreas. Sadly it's hard to capture the 3rd dimensions of pop up in a quick photo at the end of the day.
