Since 2006 Flota has organised the Front@ Contemporary Dance Festival, based in Murska Sobota, thus contributing to the decentralisation of contemporary dance in Slovenia. In the last decade Flota Institute has developed strong international partnerships and now participates in the Dance Explorations Beyond Front@ network, which it established with the support of the European Commission.
