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 Book for Feets

A delightful side effect of having a baby is that for the first time, Liam and I have collaborated on creative projects.  We made a mobile for her before she was born and now we've made Feets a book about her family in Canada so that perhaps, perhaps, she might recognise them when she meets them!
7 Joey I've loved this project - I tried (and partially succeeded) to just let go and have fun, experimenting with all the materials around my desk. I could have kept going forever, so the lovely thing about this collaboration was the commitment to actually finishing the thing!

This is a page to whet your appetite; the others (and the finished result) will follow in due course ...
