Teens 14-18 years old looking to break into the streaming eco-system can get livestream certified through the Chicago Public Library’s YOUmedia program at Harold Washington Library Center (400 S. State) today. Using YOUmedia’s livestreaming area, you can learn how to use the open source streaming software OBS to run your own channel (Twitch, YouTube, Instagram, etc). You’ll also be introduced to setting up lights and customizing your stream using music, video, and graphics. Once certified, you’re free to reserve the livestream area any time. Spots are open for both a 3:30 PM and 4:30 PM class, but you must register in advance. Can’t make it? Spots all filled up? Scroll to the bottom of the registration page; you can register now for future dates, too. (MC)
