Born Humour is the comedy division of the Born Cultural Centre. Minoria Absoluta is in charge of running all the activities within the remit of BornHumor. The first of these activities is the Humor en temps difícils (Humour in Difficult Times) conference cycle. Its aim is to consider the importance of humour in situations of conflict. Humour is a valuable weapon in the struggle against adversity. The four conferences given in this first BornHumour cycle featured: a Syrian theatre group Ahmed and Mohamed Malas (Malas Twins), the cartoonist Forges, Sergio Marras and Guillo from the Chilean magazine APSI, and Javier García Vicuña, director of the Vaya Semanita programme.
