Art students at Inverness College UHI have used their creative talents to highlight the continued importance of sustainability during the coronavirus pandemic.

HND Contemporary Art Practice students have been exploring the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to create matchbox art which symbolises the restrictions faced by them during the pandemic and their continued engagement in creative practice.

The online exhibition, Little Big World, opens today and will run throughout the Easter holiday period.

Frank To, art and design lecturer at Inverness College, said: "The whole purpose of the exhibition is not only to address the pressing contemporary world issues of which the UN Sustainable Development Goals are trying to solve, but to show the resilience of the students during this pandemic. "They have truly shown that they can overcome any challenge if they set their mind to it, and I am incredibly proud of what they have achieved this year."

The Sustainable Development Goals are a blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.
