The Tax Cuts and Job Act became law on December 22, 2017. It’s considered the biggest tax overhaul since the 1986 Tax Reform Act. The impact of its tax changes will affect business owners and other individual taxpayers. Some will pay more, others less and a few may see no changes. This workshop compares the old laws to the new ones by taking an inside look at most of the changes.

A PowerPoint presentation will be used. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the presentation and at the conclusion of the presentation.

This free event will be an open, all-ages party for students, parents, and families from the elementary schools in our after-school program, where participants can engage with student and parent art work and make connections across communities in CAPE’s after-school program.Shifting Boundaries: Family Night.

For the past three years, CAPE has partnered with four Chicago neighborhood schools to implement ongoing projects that partner local artists with Chicago Public School teachers, parents, and students. This network of partnerships has been actively representing, engaging, and communicating with their respective neighborhood communities through a practice of artistic research and localized exhibition. Shifting Boundaries is an art exhibition that explores what happens when these distinct neighborhood-based school groups come together for a citywide interaction to inform their own work and connect to external audiences.
