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 Tribute to Friendship

ailsa and heidi with signature
A little something to celebrate the friendship of two amazing three year olds.

This alphabet, which has grown slowly out of my hub cap project, and first appeared in February in my 2017 calendar, hit a creative block earlier this year.  It was my recent invigoration for collage that caused me to revisit the alphabet, and bring it to life through my extensive collection of papers.  I will say this again and again, but it is SO satisfying to be working in this 'hands on' way again!
