Pathwaves is an initiative that was founded in 2019 to support the development of female and non-binary producers and engineers. Jane Arnison, our Music Production Course Leader here at BIMM Institute Berlin, created Pathwaves after recognising that something needed to happen to try and disrupt the status quo.

At BIMM Institute we have worked with Pathwaves and have sponsored two of their programmes. BIMM students have also participated in the Pathwaves programme in 2020.
