In this week's Art Fix, there's something for all ages - kids can turn everyday rubbish into creative treasure at Hamptonne, while film lovers can watch and discuss special screenings at Greve de Lecq Barracks.
Every weekend, Express presents a selection of online and offline exhibitions, performances, workshops, events and other historic, creative and delicious content to help islanders get their weekly dose of culture.
Here's this week's offering...
The first event in Jersey's Ukraine Week is this Sunday, with islanders invited to take part in a giant 'Living Flag'.
Ukraine Week will be taking place between 21-27 August and will see a series of fundraising initiatives take place across the island.
As well as the living flag, there'll be a blue and yellow-tie dinner, an auction, a film screening, and pop-up stalls celebrating (and selling) Ukrainian foods and fashion.

ArtHouse Jersey have announced that the Olive Brown Bursary this year goes to Hamish Brodie, a 16-year-old Hautlieu student who has been accepted into The BRIT School in London to study music. Hamish achieved his Grade 8 in Piano and Music Theory in only four weeks. He has also performed many professional, paid shows in Jersey and won the Child of The Year Award at the Pride of Jersey Awards.
On receiving confirmation that he was being awarded funding, Hamish Brodie said: “It really does mean a lot to me and my family that there are charities and trusts who support young people who are passionate about a career in music or the arts. I was over the moon when I heard that I had been awarded the Olive Brown Bursary, which I was interviewed as a candidate for by ArtHouse Jersey. This will help me so much going forward in my music career for purchasing equipment and 1-1 music lessons at The BRIT School which will help me to develop my abilities further.”
Following the success of last Saturday's event, there will be another charity fundraiser this weekend at Reg's Garden.
There will be arts and crafts, a café, live music, stalls, and much more!
