After presenting the methodology, we analyzed with the group a series of projects and materials about volunteering and hospitality. Our aims was to discuss and position them in the scheme of  the Consensual Reality and Curious Rituals, to highlight possible tensions which could be used to reframe the concept emerged from previous sections.

The last two hours of the workshop where dedicated to a collective review of the concepts produced by four existing groups already formed.
