ABOUT

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at Loisaida Center with Cochise Quiles and Clayton Patterson

 

With The Street Gangs of the Lower East Side, Jose “Cochise” Quiles and Clayton Patterson provide a brutally honest, self-reflective and moving account of one person’s struggle to break the cycle of violence and poverty since birth through creativity and compassion for others in the East Village / Lower East Side. Quiles pulls no punches about the experiences that took him from gang leader to historian of gangs, artist, and author who creates with a joyous yet desperate edge, for the sake of sheer survival.
