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.

Finger Puppets

IMG_1076 Given my working life, it was pretty much an essential that, in the midst of wedding preparations, I wanted to devise something crafty, creative and open ended for the children, from the 3 year olds to the very big, grown up ones. And so, quietly, so as not to give my husband-to-be the anxiety that we'd never be ready, I gathered together the materials for making finger puppets and spent a glorious evening building a mini puppet theatre. _S070041 Photos thanks to Andrew Mason (above) and Pete Stevens (below)
