Joseph Althouse

Joseph is an  Aboriginal creative who completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting) at NIDA in 2018. Originally from Darwin, Joseph came to performance rather randomly. In primary school, Joseph joined the Alawa Primary School’s Tournament of Minds team. The thrill of telling a story with friends to a captive audience was intoxicating; his love of performance was spawned.
At age 12, Joseph was the recipient of a scholarship to go to boarding school in Adelaide. It was in Adelaide that Joseph went further with this desire to perform, pushing his way into choirs, musicals and plays. In 2013 Joseph would move to Sydney to finish his high school career at St. Ignatius’ College, Riverview. By that point Joseph had just about given up on everything else and had his eyes set on making his performing arts dream a reality.
Upon completing his HSC, Joseph was accepted into NIDA’s class of 2018. Over the past three years Joseph has had the privilege of receiving a quality actor training that has supplied him with an arsenal of tools ready to take into the industry with him. As a young, queer Indigenous artist, Joseph wishes to use his voice to work towards curating a national identity that is inclusive and representative of who we are.
