Willie Baronet | Faculty | Temerlin Advertising Institute’s Stan Richards Professor in Creative Advertising |Meadows School of the Arts | Home. Again.
Meadows School faculty member Willie Baronet opened the TEDxSMU show to a standing ovation (it’s his third TEDxSMU appearance) with the latest chapter in his quest to buy signs from the homeless – this time to talk about his sign-collecting journey across the country and how it shaped his understanding of “home.”
“Three years ago I stood on this same stage and talked about my WE ARE ALL HOMELESS project, and I said I wanted to travel across the country one day to buy signs,” Baronet said. “In July of 2014 I did just that, traveling from Seattle to LA to New York in 31 days. I’m honored to be part of this year’s TEDxSMU/Inside SMU program so that I can share some highlights of this adventure, and the lessons I continue to learn about compassion, gratitude and what home really means.”
