Hua Quan Village is an art and cultural village located in Jiangxi, China, a 3 hour train ride from Shanghai. It is right next to Longhu Mountain (Dragon Tiger Mountain), the birthplace of Taoism and one of China’s most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The village was created as a place for people of all walks of life to create their own personalized journey of creative exploration.
Spanning across 41 acres (165,000 square meters), Hua Quan Village was created by legendary musician Liu Jiachang and philanthropist Susan Wang over the course of 11 years and is one of the largest art and cultural centers in Asia.
The village houses and supports a large number of local artists.
Curated by the nation’s leading artists, musicians, and cultural experts, Hua Quan Village provides a rare opportunity to explore numerous galleries, over 100 outdoor murals created by famous artists from around the world, art museums, and cultural museums.
Additionally, the village offers a collection of art, well-being, and cultural classes and experiences that cater to every individual’s needs and interests.
With numerous schools from University of Long Island graduate programs to International Schools in Shanghai visiting Hua Quan Village in the past year and providing feedback, we have decided to bolster our offering.

The position will be based at the village in Jiangxi, China with travel flexibility. As a key member of our leadership team, the candidate will begin with re-developing our art and culture educational programs and classes.
