After the good receiving of the first two editions, Small size seeding fund, the fund aimed to support the creation of new productions for the 0-4 age group, opens again to new production proposals.
The third Call for Proposals, launched on September 1st 2012, will close on December 31st 2012, and brings something new in the Seeding fund: the call, in fact, is now open also to extra-European companies and artists.
You can read some information on previous editions of the Seeding fund here

The Small size Seeding Fund is not an award, but a way to support those who intend to produce shows for early years. This is why shows already produced are not going to be awarded; projects are instead selected and supported.
This fund was awarded once during "Small size, the net" project, and led to the creation of eight new Productions for children 0 to 4 – eight productions which had the chance to be presented during at least one Small size festival. A second Call for Proposal - the first for "Small size, big citizens" project - was launched in March 2010, and brought to the selection of 5 production projects, while the third one, launched in September 2011, saw 4 production projects selected and supported.
