2016 Diversity Conference - Keynote Address

<p>Matt Gould &amp; Griffin Matthews are the young creators of the musical “Invisible Thread", winner of the 2012 and 2014 Richard Rogers Award for Musical Theater.</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIsc2T8N57I" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">“Invisible Thread”</a> takes place in 2005 Uganda when Matthews arrives as a volunteer from New York City to help build a village school and escape his church’s probing into his sexuality. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with a group of destitute, orphaned teenagers, he becomes obsessed with a mission that will change his and their lives forever. Told through personal accounts of triumph and tragedy against the backdrop of heart thumping Afro-pop music, “Invisible Thread” tackles the question: is changing the world even possible?</p><br>
