About Blokepedia

We are passionate about improving the lives of Australian men. It is our mission to create positive change through opportunities for connection, learning, and individual development.

Our Story

Blokepedia was born out of an idea Josh Quarmby had to create a blog site that enabled men to share their stories and discuss the issues that impact their lives.
In 2016 Blokepedia grew beyond it’s online presence and held it’s first event in Brisbane, showcasing some of the great conversations that were underway and promoting the importance of social connection.
From humble begins, Blokepedia now works alongside businesses and communities to deliver health and wellbeing solutions that see benefits for individuals, families, and the wider community.

Our Vision

Blokepedia is committed to creating a caring and supportive community that encourages men to connect, openly share their stories and discuss the issues and topics that affect them.

Our Values

If we are going to improve men’s health outcomes, we all need to be involved in these important conversations. For this reason, inclusivity is at the core of what we do and we encourage both men and women to participate in our programs and events.

Our Team

Blokepedia’s team combines expertise in psychology, training facilitation, HR consultation, and community engagement.
