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.

Feets' Neon Birthday Party

DSC_1042 Inspired by our efforts at London Transport Museum in October, Liam and I decided to throw a glow in the dark birthday party for Feets.

Since she was only turning two, we freely admit that the party was mostly for us.

And since I insisted on it, I admit the party was mostly for me.

With a bit of fun for everyone ... DSC_1050 And here are a few things that respond well to UV light ... tonic water (and tonic ice cubes); neon balloons; neon-dyed pasta threaded as beads; neon balloons; white paper collage with black patterns; neon-dyed rice; high-vis cycle jackets; white patterned clothing.
