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.

Sticking and Painting

Feets has reached the glorious age (two!) where the world of possibility for creative mayhem seems to expand every day.  The question is, having time to prepare some bits and pieces, protect the space, clean up ... so I thought I'd share two quick easy thoughts on arting and crafting!
IMAG0662 Selotape! One desperate moment with half an hour until tea, Feets passed a glorious time experimenting with my collage bag and the different types of tape I could find. IMG_7780 Another day, we experimented with some Stabilo Multi-talented Pencils that I'd bought myself as a treat ... and they were a TREAT! Big fat and chunky, they made vivid marks, followed by a whole new layer of fun with nothing but water, and then drawing into the water again afterwards. Magical, waterbased, incredibly quick to set up and a quick wipe to clear away. Woop!
