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.

DIY Cupcake Stands

IMG_1055Returning to the wedding theme, it's time to address the question of cake. Our friends and aunt, Kirsten, Natalie and Joey, generously agreed to make cupcakes, which would happily tide our guests over until dinner. But it seemed shockingly expensive to find attractive cake stands to hold 140 cakes! So I gathered together the plates on offer at local charity shops, along with the eternal selection of glassware they seem to provide, and made my own. IMG_1057Warning - using cheap superglue worked well enough to get through, but they are not the strongest items in the kitchen!
