For the culture.
Culture should belong to its creators. In Memphis, our culture is built by Black artists, creatives, and communities. Tone elevates the people and places that make our city drip with character.

Tone empowers Black artists and communities so we can share creativity and knowledge across the spectrum of Blackness in order to elevate Memphis as a global cultural beacon.

Tone is highlighting art & culture.
We prioritize programming that elevates Black artists creating culture. Our exhibitions, concerts, talks, panels, screenings, readings, and round-tables are the absolute core of Tone.

Tone is building Black community.
We build connectivity in the Black community through partnerships, block parties, storytelling, and more. We seek out partnerships that create a deep infrastructure for Black artists in Memphis.
