"We Are All Homeless - The Signs of Humanity Project and Documentary" with Willie Baronet, Co-Director/Producer and the Stan Richards Professor of Creative Advertising at SMU
In 1993, Willie Baronet started buying homeless signs as a way to deal with his discomfort at ignoring people on the streets. In 2008, that project became "We Are All Homeless." This led to a 2016 documentary called "Signs of Humanity," which chronicled his journey with three filmmakers across the country buying signs and interviewing people along the way. The documentary deals with the interrelated themes of home, homelessness, compassion, and humanity. Willie will discuss the impact of his work and what all of us can learn from his experiences.
