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 Shed Bar

_DSF9520In planning our wedding, we suddenly began to identify with the entire event, when we realised we could transform the shed into a bar. Embracing the kayaks, birds nests and abandoned furniture, it was a natural spot for a bar. We decided that here, too, could hide our assorted photographs ... we collected a photo of every guest that was connected to us (we didn't always manage their partners) and I had a dream of time exploring a multitude of ways for making fake picture frames from cardboard. From gold tissue paper, to varnished maps, gold crayon and patterned papers, I managed to create about 60 frames and spread them around the bar. _S160070
