Project Development

PeaceBugle is being developed through ARTS UK, a specialist arts development consultancy run by Steve Chettle.

A Trust will be formed to take over and carry out the project objectives. It will be registered as a Company Limited by Guarantee and will apply for charitable status to support and assist the project.

Steve Chettle's background:

He trained as a fine artist at Portsmouth Polytechnic and was a founder member of Art Space Portsmouth and the ASPEX Gallery. Moving to the north in 1983 he was Development Director at Northern Print, Newcastle, Visual Arts Officer at Cleveland Arts and Public Art Officer for Cumbria County Council before going freelance in 1995. He established ARTS UK in 2000, of which he is Director.

He has been involved in a broad range of arts work including commissioning new music as part of oneplace at Tatton Park, and has experience of long-term projects such as Andy Goldsworthy - Sheepfolds, Writing on the Wall and Crawick Multiverse, with Charles Jencks, as well as many public art commissions and projects for clients in the public, private and voluntary sector.

PeaceBugle is very grateful for the support it has received in its development from Peter Mortimer and Janet Ross and also colleagues and friends who have commented, advised or made donations in support of the project.
