Be Curious.


My name is Mateen Manek and I am a creative. I've made films, written a poetry book and even wrote and recorded my own song. I believe that you don't have to be an expert or some kind of super genius to create.

More importantly, I believe everyone has a story to tell.

‘the clearly illiterate café’ is built around everything I stand for: being creative and exploring your passions. I want to build a community that empowers people with the tools and skills to tell their story.
