The Jiading branch of Shanghai Citizen Art Night School was established this year at Jiading Cultural Cloud, offering various classes like Chinese painting and yoga, which have been popular with white-collar workers and young people.

In addition to hosting various classes, Jiading Cultural Cloud also arranges over 1,000 events annually to entertain residents.
