ABOUT

Frequency, a gathering of creatives, entrepreneurs, and tech people to build culture.

We exist to make Tulsa a place that supports and amplifies homegrown creative talent.

We know that artists and creatives build culture, which is the undercurrent for all progress and economic development. We invest in artists by equipping them with the tools and resources all entrepreneurs need: space for community and collaboration,
access to capital, access to technology, mentorships and professional development, and a network of connections to new opportunities.

CORE VALUES

  • Creativity means that we believe in the inherent value of music and art and the enrichment that creators bring to their communities.
  • Diversity means we believe in bringing all people together and placing additional emphasis on supporting historically marginalized communities and BIPOC individuals.
  • Authenticity means we believe in honest, open expression of self through creativity.
  • Collaboration means we believe connection is an engine of creation;  and the intersection of creatives across disciplines breeds innovation.
