BRING YOUR DREAMS TO LIFE
Whether you are an actor, artist, baker, chef, coder, dancer, graphic designer, maker, musician, videographer, problem solver, change-maker, or anyone else who defines themselves by their desire to create, you are welcome here. We are excited to provide you with a home to hone your craft, practice your trade, perform for audiences large & small, teach others, and sell your wares locally and beyond.
If you need a 250+ seat theatre & performance venue with recording/live stream capabilities to share your dance studio’s latest performance, a commercial kitchen to launch your cottage food based business or food truck, a retail/office space with direct access to Washington Street, a place to teach a class to the community or meet-up with your quilting club, a sound booth to launch a podcast, or a connection to another local group or individual who can help you in your creative endeavor, we’re here to set the stage for your success.
We are the Masonic Arts, Theatre & Innovation Company, better known as MÄTI (Mah*tee). Based in the historic Masonic Square Mall in downtown Marquette, our goal is to acquire the building and turn it into a regional creative, collaborative hub that provides the creative community with a place to share their vision with the public and promote innovation through all art mediums.

Kitchen Upgrades Coming Soon!
The Masonic Association of Marquette is proud to be the recipient of a $49,800 Michigan Department of Agriculture Value Added & Regional Food Systems grant to expand equipment offerings for local food entrepreneurs over the next three years.
The Masonic Building will use the funds for:
- Upgrading and expanding our kitchen equipment selection.
- Providing increased cold and lockable dry storage space.
- Adding freezer carts or trikes that allow members to sell their cold products directly to consumers during summer months.
- Add a remote-access entryway and tracking system to our facilities that will allow for member access 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Come and see some of what we offer (you may need an invite to the weddings though...) or contact us to hold your own event!
