Rocking Roadrunner

Artwork created by 90 people with learning disabilities has gone on display in the atrium of Northamptonshire County Council’s One Angel Square headquarters.

Olympus Care Services worked in partnership with the non-profit organisation Rockin' Roadrunner to create the spectacular pieces.

During this year the Roadrunner crew rolled out the fourth round of the Rockin' Roadrunner creative workshops featuring Olympus Care Services customers.

The artwork has been created at different resource centres around the county with individual pieces coming together to reflect a unique creative community.

Councillor Bill Parker, county council cabinet member for adult social services, said:


“It is inspiring to see the creativity and high quality of the pieces of artwork on display.

“This partnership working between Olympus Care Services and The Rockin' Roadrunner is a first class example of the ways we can work together to improve our customers’ lives.”

The team visited five of Olympus Care Services resource centres to create circus themed artwork which was displayed at the Rockin' Roadrunner annual festival.

  • Riverside  Centre, Towcester
  • Gladstone Road, Northampton
  • Allen Road, Northampton
  • Oxford Street, Wellingborough
  • Ashgrove, Rushden

The Rockin' Roadrunner team is also celebrating its 10-year anniversary on Monday, 4 December at The Roadmender in Northampton, by holding a Birthday Bash nightclub with and for adults with disabilities and their carers.
