Ja! International Festival of Literature and Art featuring Humour is a cultural event highlighting the importance of humour in the arts and especially in literature; humour is understood in its broadest sense and as the ultimate expression of intelligence, civilisation and joie de vivre.  

Ja! has been held since 2010 at the beginning of autumn at various venues in Bilbao. The festival’s programme is diverse, offering space for discussion and fun. Ja! combines conversations on the most varied topics and interviews with the most exciting authors alongside exhibitions, competitions and performances.
