From 22-23 August 2013, 59 people gathered in Cafe Burgundy’s at the University of Pretoria to consider the status of reconciliation and social cohesion in South Africa today. The Consultation adopted the format of story-telling and world cafe, allowing for intense interaction and conversation in a safe space, surfacing critical themes and issues, articulating these into 7 questions, and reflecting upon these questions for the duration of our time.

The Consultation was hosted by the Unit for Social Cohesion and Reconciliation in the Centre for Contextual Ministry at the University of Pretoria. Liz de Wet was facilitating the conversation during the Consultation.
