Jonathan Campbell – Artistic Director
Jonathan Campbell’s career is rooted in the decade (2000-2010) he spent in Beijing as a drummer, writer, promoter, agent and more actively bridging East and West. In addition to presenting, taking and sending dozens of bands to cities across China, Europe, Canada, and the US, he has been part of delegations to music-industry conferences in Asia, Europe, and North and South America, and his writing has appeared in collections and in media outlets around the world. His book, Red Rock: The Long Strange March of Chinese Rock and Roll, was published in 2011, which brought him to literary festivals and venues around the world to discuss rock music in China. In Toronto, he has worked with many of the city’s major cultural institutions in communications, outreach, and programming capacities including Harbourfront Centre, TIFF, Massey Hall/Roy Thomson Hall, and the Aga Khan Museum and is a 2018-2020 APAP Leadership Fellow.
