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.

Laydeez do Comics

Blog 1 I was delighted to stumble across Laydeez do Comics in an old email, thrilled to realise I could actually attend the next gathering, and brazenly offered my blogging services. Having, admittedly, not quite realised the brilliance of my blogging predecessors. Blog 2 An awe-inspiring evening in the gorgeous Teahouse Theatre, a warm, warm welcome and a whole bunch of creative people who do not require me to turn up reliably at every meeting - most exactly what I need! A new book that seems to have taken my precise life situation and put it into pictures and writing, thanks Richy K Chandler. Blog 3 And a new book to come that looks likely to embrace all my dreams about the potential of a graphic novel and tell - well, a much-needed story. Thanks Lucy Sullivan.
