Larissa D’Andrea speaks with Mario Schulzke about the formation of Art into Activism, a 501(c )(3) that focuses on supporting underserved and marginalized communities.
As a new founder, she shares her key learnings:
- Authenticity is important to guide you through the good and the bad
- Effective time and goal management provides a framework to tackle the critical few
- People are important – invest time and energy to build relationships, understand different points of view, and be willing to learn together
Hard Knock Productions is a social impact production company focused on developing unique stories to increase the visibility of LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and people with disabilities, and we leverage these stories to educate others and advocate for marginalized communities through partnerships with non-profit organizations.
Art into Activism is a 501(c)(3) organization that promotes and supports diversity, equity, and inclusion of underserved and marginalized persons and communities, encourages environmental sustainability, and supports art that promotes positive social impact.
