His writing has appeared in many media outlets and collections; his book "Red Rock: The Long Strange March of Chinese Rock and Roll," was published in 2011. Since returning to Toronto he has worked at and with many of Toronto’s major cultural institutions – Harbourfront Centre, Massey Hall/Roy Thomson Hall, Aga Khan Museum, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and more – in communications, outreach and programming, and was a 2018-2020 APAP Leadership Fellow. He co-founded Good Kind Productions – a founding member of diverse-music presenter-collective Polyphonic Ground – in 2015 to find creative ways to bridge gaps and encourage cross-cultural collaboration and understanding. From 2015-2019 GKP produced secret concerts under the banner of Sofar Sounds Toronto, in addition to many other events. In 2019 Campbell joined Small World Music, a presenter of diverse music founded in 1997, as Head of Programs, overseeing music-industry conference/showcase Global Toronto, and eMERGEnce, the artist development program for marginalized and under-represented newcomer, refugee, and emerging musicians.
