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.

A Stocking for Feets

DSC_0836 DSC_0831Four precious hours in the Art Room and I was compelled to make a stocking for Feets. It was a very focussed and extremely satisfying project, though time constraints mean it's not quite as lavish and ridiculously over the top as I would have liked! I thought perhaps I could add a flower or bow each year. And perhaps one day she'll take over the decorations herself ...

It's her first Christmas and we are pretty low key about these things, so we didn't buy her any gifts, just gave her some boxes, filled a couple of containers with rice and the like, and a bottle with glittery water. She was pretty happy!
