Coupe de Coeur began as an art fundraising campaign with the aim of providing clean, handsome, pretty, pixie, anything! haircuts by the one and only Paddy Leung. Since 2015 Paddy has fundraised events with the hope that artists, non-artists, designers, and dreamers could all have the opportunity to support the arts in a mutually beneficial way. For Paddy's first event they raised more than $3000. The money helped them to cover the cost of materials and venues to host ongoing art events. Some of Paddy's favourite fun and free workshops have included tie-dye, sticker making, and kite making.

Eventually, Paddy had the opportunity to teach at the Art Gallery of Ontario to help develop their youth program called Free After Three. They developed fun D.I.Y. art projects for students to express their inner creativity and passion for the arts. In recent years, their practice has focused largely on community arts and providing inclusive programming, primarily for youth.

In the next couple of seasons, Paddy would like to invite you for outdoor or house-call appointments and give you the freshest cut in exchange for your generous donations. Donations will go toward helping Paddy obtain their barber's licence, so that they can fine-tune their skills and continue working to provide a safe place for people to express themselves and feel their best. If you'd like to contribute, please book an appointment for a magical haircut and become a proud patron of Coupe de Coeur.
