BORN OUT OF A PASSION TO SERVE
Keda Edwards Pierre founder and CEO of Broken Whole Media Group and a writer-producer. As a retired police officer, Keda consults and develops procedurals, and is passionate about developing authentic and provocative content.
The themes of family, relationship, healing, sacrifice, redemption and interconnectivity are often themes in her work.
27 years with Toronto Police, law school and an acting background in Film,TV and Theatre, made Keda acutely aware of the rich untold stories from under-represented communities and the lack of safe inclusive spaces to tell those stories. Broken Whole was born.
The name Broken Whole is inspired by the Japanese artform: Kintsugi – which mends broken pottery with precious metals. Acknowledging the valuable inspiration and powerful lessons in the flawed landscapes of our world, this boutique production company embraces the stories of transcension and transformation from audiences and communities of storytellers that have been underserved and underrepresented in the history of media – which includes but are not limited to those of us who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, LGBQ2SI+, Female, Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming, Differently Abled.
Keda loves cars, weightlifting and gardening.
