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.

Kaffe Fassett

Several people told me I MUST see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum.  I must admit, I didn't know a lot about him, but I'm not so very bothered about quilting, and while I love to knit, I wasn't too sure an exhibition of knitting would grab my imagination.
Well ... you MUST see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition!  There are three weeks left.  It was a mesmerising, enticing, dancing world of colour that reminds me there's no such thing as colour going out of fashion, and once more confirms that craft holds as much richness, joy, creativity and respect as other art forms.
I only have to remind myself now, that I don't need to learn quilting at the present time.  Perhaps I'll make a rag rug ... oh yes, and one of these eccentric hats.
