Embodied Futures can be adapted to work with any community from business to environment. Communities that have so far been documented as case studies include: community workers as part of their professional development, high school students, survivors of sexual violence and trauma, Brisbane residents and Timorese people in their homelands of Timor-Leste. Below is a video that focuses on the workshops of Timor-Leste and is the video component mentioned in the PhD submission on Embodied Futures.
