In addition to its curatorial program EMPAC supports many campus events, including seven each year chosen and sponsored by the Arts Department/HASS. This is a graduate PhD thesis project.

A collaboration with J.T. Rinker, Meiko's Knole is an exploration of Knole House, a storied estate in Kent, United Kingdom, and the subject of recent research. Using archival film materials as a source of inspiration, Meiko's Knole blends performance, film and song in an attempt to collapse the opposition between fact and fiction.

Every year, the Rensselaer Department of the Arts programs seven events utilizing the infrastructure and support of the production teams at EMPAC. These productions often include final graduate thesis projects that are developed in the venues themselves.
