Larissa D’Andrea is the Founder of Hard Knock Productions LLC (HKP) and Art into Activism (501c3). With a passion for art and entertainment, she founded the social impact organization in 2020 with a focus on investing in art that inspires activism to create a positive, inclusive, and innovative environment; and the non-profit in 2021 to advocate for and support marginalized communities through partnerships with other non-profit organizations. Specifically, HKP develops unique stories to increase the visibility of LGBTQIA+, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and People with Disabilities. Through our work with artists, musicians, and filmmakers, we focus on environmental sustainability in artistic mediums, strive to create positive and inclusive work environments, and educate ourselves on the history of original landowners of the land on which we operate and identify opportunities to support those communities. Art into Activism, a 501c3 organization, was created to partner with other non-profit organizations and marginalized communities to support their work and advocate alongside them on issues that matter to them most.
