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.

Collograph Prints

November brought the arrival of Scissors Paper Cloth, my new art group for adults, and we began with an exploration of collograph printing techniques.
IMG_5181I was blown away by some of the outcomes, and by the enthusiasm and commitment of the participants, as they braved the risks of experimenting with materials.

And almost every time, the risks paid off!IMG_5182Sadly, I can't find photos of all the work, but everybody had something I would have loved to share here.IMG_5233These prints, top to bottom, are by Ann, Carole, Anita and Christine.IMG_5238
