Lee Mingwei (the “Artist”) and MOCA (collectively, the “Project Administrators”, “we”, “our”) are undertaking an artistic initiative, entitled “The Travelers”, which is intended as a community arts collaboration that explores the topic of personal journeys, for which an individual author (the “Author(s)”, “you”, “your”) will (i) be provided the opportunity to submit their personal accounts (each a “Story”, collectively the “Stories”), written in the Author’s own handwriting, within red notebooks specifically designed by the Artist and (ii) be encouraged to submit their Story in a red notebook received during a visit to MOCA with the intention of circulating that particular notebook to other potential Authors to submit their Story(ies) in each such Author’s own handwriting (the “Project”). The Project will culminate in an evocative installation and exhibition by the Artist, with all of the Stories accumulated into a set of one hundred (100) red notebooks (the “Work”) for public exhibition and access.

In order to participate in the Project, each individual Author will be required to provide (i) his/her Story, (ii) photos to accompany his/her Story (collectively, the “Author Content”) and (iii) certain Personal Information (as defined in the Privacy Policy) including, but not limited to, autobiographical details such as the Author’s geographical location.
