The project has been developed for 9 months by experts in many fields under the direction of the sevillian team Nomad Garden.
Kleos Doramas is an app which connects vegetable species with scientific fragments, artistics and musical resources to build a story. A story throughout the plants which speaks about travelling, connections and cultural mixings. Kleos is materialised in a phone app which reveals the stories from the plants of Doramas Garden and remixes them with the traditional music from their countries.
It’s highly recommended to install the app on your phone and wear headphones.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria City Council, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Sports and Santa Catalina Royal Hideaway Hotel has started this free app for IOS and ANDROID Kleos Doramas, with the main objective of «spread the connection between the Parque Doramas environment and the story of the city». «Human beings need to be in touch with their environment. Not only because it gives us shelter but also healthiness and happiness. On a day like The International Day of Environmental Protection, it’s important to remember the need for natural and far connection with the green fields. In the cosmopolitan lives of the big cities, we sometimes forget that human side which connects us with our roots», pointed out by Catalina, a Royal Hideaway Hotel.
Parque Doramas is located in the avenue of Muelle Deportivo, alongside Museo Néstor and the emblematic Santa Catalina, a Royal Hideaway Hotel. Is a natural oasis in the middle of the capital of Gran Canaria. With an area of 47.800 square metres of dragos, ficus, palms and other species, integrated by canary species and africans, americans, asiatic, oceanic and europeans.
