Nosagenda released it's first edition of the Nosagenda Magazine in June 2019. Our objective is to publish a magazine in three languages twice a year, in June and December. In English, Portuguese and in Dutch.
In the magazine you will discover the diversity of local talents on a paradise archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, about 500 kilometers from the west coast of Africa: Cabo Verde. A country where love without borders (amor sem frontera) is the unifying factor of all Cape Verdeans in the diaspora.

At a young age I started drawing and painting with my uncle. This is where my love for the creative industry starts
to develop. At the age of 19 I moved to The Netherlands where I studied typo / graphic design at the media college
After a lang journey searching for a way to give back what I’ve learned in my creative journey, I found Nosagenda
who to me is the perfect fit to give back, inspire and get inspired by others. I join
the team in 2019 and sinds we’ve been working hard to make Nosagenda the most inspiring magazine with

At the beginning of the project to create Nosagenda Magazine, Elga asked Ermelindo to join this beautiful initiative.
Ermelindo is mainly involved in creating content of the magazine and sales & promotion. He is motivated by the idea to share stories about Cape Verde with the goal to inform and inspire others.
“Being a member of the Nosagenda team is great. As a volunteer I have always learned a lot of meeting new people with a different background and working together to realize ideological projects”.
From different artists, events and activity organizers who have background or interest in Cape Verdean culture.
This is exactly what Nosagenda stands for: to be a platform that centralizes our Cape Verdean activities while motivating and inspiring people to connect in celebration of our culture.
